Scholarship and fellowship support allows USC Rossier to attract talented, motivated and diverse candidates to the field of education by lessening the financial burden facing many of our students upon graduation.  Rossier students are committed to having a positive impact on learning in high need communities, These are the kinds of future educators that our country needs. With your help, we can insure that they will pursue their passion without being constrained by debt.  Rossier currently provides up to 150 student aid packages and our goal is to double that support.

Support opportunities include named endowed funds, special current use funds, and international travel scholarships.
