Leventhal Scholarships
Through the support of employers, alumni and other contributors, the Leventhal School of Accounting is able to provide a number of scholarships to students (domestic and international) in the MAcc and the MBT Full-Time programs. The scholarships vary in amount and are disbursed during the Fall and Spring semesters.

All applicants (domestic and international) are considered for scholarships and applicants are required to submit one additional essay (see online application).  Scholarship recipients are notified at the time of admission offer.
January 10, 2010 is the deadline for priority scholarship consideration.

We do not offer scholarships for students in our MBT-Working Professionals program.

Guidelines for submitting proof of financial support can be found here: (click on "Guidelines for Submitting Proof of Financial Support" PDF)
Please scan and upload your document to the online application or mail the original document to the address provided on the Admissions section of our website.  You do not have to fax or email the document as stated on the above PDF.

The University does not provide application fee waivers to international students nor are they eligible for federal or university need-based financial aid from the USC Financial Aid Office. As a result, all international students should be prepared to meet all expenses from their own resources. Financial aid for international students is extremely limited and therefore should not be relied upon.  For additional information on financial aid options for international students, please click here
