The USC BAA Scholarship Committee typically receives more than 500 applications every year. Working in teams, committee members evaluate these applications and conduct interviews with students. No prior experience is required to be a part of the evaluation teams—simply a commitment to the volunteer and scholarship process. The majority of the committee work is conducted over two weeks in late February and early March.
