Apply for a Scholarship
The LAA Scholarship Committee considers a number of factors in a student’s application, including USC activities and service. The committee is particularly interested in funding students who have demonstrated a commitment to the Latino/Hispanic community, as well as leadership aptitude and exceptional academic and professional potential.
Scholarship applicants must be enrolled as full-time students: undergraduate students must complete a minimum of 12 units per semester with a 3.0 cumulative GPA, while graduate students must complete a minimum of 6 units per semester with a cumulative 3.0 GPA.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of need and/or merit. A needs assessment and overall financial aid package will be evaluated to determine the amount of assistance provided by the LAA. The Submission deadline is March 1, 2022.
Undergraduate students awarded and LAA scholarship must complete various requirements such as attending the LAA Scholars Retreat, professional development workshops, volunteer service/involvement with USC Latino Alumni Association during the academic year. Scholars must also register with the USC Career Center – ConnectSC. Undergraduate scholarships renew automatically each year if the student fulfills the requirements each academic year and maintains a 3.0 GPA.
Graduate students must reapply each year for the LAA Scholarship and must complete limited USC LAA requirements during the academic year. LAA applications are available in October of each year and the deadline to submit the application is March 1st of each year
