USC Africa Student Fund
The USC Africa Student Fund is an endowment to support undergraduate student travel to African countries for study, research, service-based learning and internships.
During the fund's first year, 2010, three students - representing the USC School of Cinematic Arts; USC College of Letters, Arts and Sciences; and USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism - received awards for projects in Senegal, Mozambique and Ethiopia.
Applications are welcome every fall for travel the following spring and summer. Students must have a minimum 3.5 grade-point average to qualify. Application requirements include a two-page personal statement as well as a faculty endorsement. Additionally, upon return to the United States, students must submit a five-page reflective essay.
