Darla Moore School of Business

General Scholarships and Awards

During the 2018-19 academic year, over 400 Moore School students received more than $900,000 from donor funded scholarships. The awarding of Moore School scholarships is managed through one common electronic application, so that students only need to complete one application in order to be considered for all scholarships for which they meet scholarship criteria.

General Scholarships and Awards

Applicants for general undergraduate business scholarships for academic year 2019-2020 must complete an undergraduate scholarship application and submit it electronically.  Please complete the appropriate Scholarship Application in its entirety. Thoroughly completing the application, including the optional questions, may broaden the scholarships for which you are considered because they help identify applicants who meet specific criteria.

The applications will open for submission in January 2019, at the beginning of the spring term. There are two applications with different deadlines for 2019-2020 scholarships (one for returning students and one for new students). Late submissions will not be accepted.  

Renewal applicants

Current recipients of Darla Moore School of Business general scholarships (2018-2019 academic year) must reapply to be considered for the 2019-2020 academic year. Scholarships are not automatically renewed.

General guidelines

Moore School general scholarships are competitive and limited. The number and amount of scholarships awarded vary and are subject to available funds.  Recipients who do not enroll or transfer from the Moore School to another college forfeit any previously awarded Moore School scholarships. Other scholarships may be available through USC's Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Notification of scholarship status

General scholarship recipient notifications will be sent via email and will include the amount and name of the scholarship award. Scholarship awards for 2019-2020 will be announced on or around June 1, 2019.
