Funding

WELCOME TO USG FUNDS

 

The Funding Branch is here to offer our support to student programs, ideas, and development. If you’re interested in funding, please look over the information and resources below. Determine what your funding needs are, and review the policies for such. After reviewing the policies, you will have the chance to proceed to the actual funding applications.

 

Please contact the Treasurer (usgfunds@usc.edu) or one of the funding directors if you have questions. Student organizations and individuals who reach out with their funding questions and concerns are more successful in the funding process than those who do not.
