About this Fellowship

Available to graduating seniors, graduate students and recent alumni to conduct research, pursue advanced study, practice a creative art or undertake teaching assistantships for one year in a foreign country.

The USC campus process begins annually in the spring semester, and applicants work with advisors throughout the summer, leading up to the fall campus deadline.

Candidates must meet with the USC campus committee for a campus evaluation early in the fall semester. Strong applicants present a clear program of study or teaching to be carried out in a particular setting abroad.
