USC Summer Programs Office, within the Provost's Office, sponsors a scholarship opportunity for high school students to attend USC Summer Programs.

The Provost's Pre-College Military Scholarship seeks to provide full scholarships to dependents/students from an active military family; the scholarship will cover the entire tuition and fees, airfare, ground transportation, room and board, and course materials.

Note: The 2020 USC Summer Scholarship for High School Students of Military Families deadline has passed. Please check back with the Summer Programs office in November 2020 for details about next year's scholarship opportunity.

Sprawled on the ground, I was half-laughing and half-crying as the small robot that I built and coded refused to find the path of electrical tape it was supposed to follow. Instead, the robot proceeded to turn doughnuts after bumping the table leg that was serving as an obstacle, while my friend and fellow engineering student filmed the entire spectacle. In that moment, as I lay on the common room floor of my dorm at the University of Southern California, I realized that I was meant to be an engineer. Despite the rough night of coding a stubborn robot, I could not give up on my efforts to find a solution, and I loved every minute. From my epiphany on the common room floor to my interactions with other students, the sum total of my weeks at USC was the most meaningful intellectual experience of my life.
