Thanks to the generosity of our donors and Dean Papadopoulos, the Department of Regulatory and Quality Sciences offers multiple scholarships based on financial need, scholastic achievement, and leadership qualities.
Scholarships do not have to be repaid and are awarded in varying amounts to students who meet special criteria and qualifications outlined by a selection committee or donor. Unless otherwise indicated, all scholarships and merit awards can only be used toward tuition expenses.
If you are receiving financial aid, due to federal financial aid guidelines your award package may be affected through a reduction in your overall award amount. If you have any questions about the impact on your financial aid, please contact the School of Pharmacy Financial Aid Office at (323) 442-1466 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you did not apply for financial aid this award could be considered taxable income. Please contact USC Student Financial Services to determine if this could apply to your personal situation; general information is located at https://sfs.usc.edu/, or call (213) 740-4077 or by email at email@example.com.
