Supporting Viterbi Students

Your Support Matters

Our students choose to come to the USC Viterbi School of Engineering because we are one of the best engineering schools in the nation, delivering the best engineering education possible.  Our goal is to continue to provide our students with an exceptional academic experience that will give them the tools and skills they need to do great things for our community, nation, and even the world. This happens by exposing them to preeminent engineering faculty along with giving them access to the best engineering resources and facilities. Only with the support of our loyal and generous alumni, parents and friends are we able to accomplish this goal.

By making a gift today, you are helping support talented students who may not otherwise have the means to obtain an engineering education, support the first time USC experience of our incoming graduate students, and support the operations of a student organization where students apply their engineering education to real world scenarios.

Please make a gift today in support of one of the areas below.  No matter the size of your gift, your participation is what is most important to making an impact on the lives of our students.

Graduate Student Support

When students arrive from outside the area, they need early support from the Viterbi Graduate and Professional Programs (GAPP) office with finding housing, connecting with USC and community resources, and learning about cultural and regional differences that make graduate study at an internationally focused university so exciting. Your gift will provide connections to resources and programs on campus for our international students to cope with the biggest hurdles facing them as they settle into Los Angeles.

Scholarships & Fellowships

Today, the need for student financial support – especially endowed support – is more urgent than ever before. There is no more meaningful and effective way to provide bright, hardworking students with the opportunity to experience all that USC has to offer. Scholarships and fellowships provide life-changing opportunities for our most promising and talented students.

Student Organizations

Whether it is going out into the California desert to launch a rocket; building a race car from the ground up; going to another country to build a working water structure for a small village; or working to support and prepare elementary school students in our community for the opportunity to come to USC, our students are learning first-hand how engineering, mechanics, physics and philanthropy can make an impact in real-world scenarios. Only with the support of alumni, parents and friends are we able to provide our students with the materials and resources they need to fulfill their goals to become better engineers and community leaders.
