A new prestigious award for PhD studies at USC has been founded, and one of its objectives is to attract the most talented and sought-after students from Mexico to USC. Called the USC Global Fellowships, the award will go to outstanding applicants to any USC PhD program. The awards include full tuition, year-round health and dental insurance, and an annual stipend of $30,000. USC hopes to award at least five fellowships to candidates from Mexico in 2012.
USC’s global fellowship programs are designed to attract and serve outstanding PhD students from regions around the world. Global fellowships represent the highest level of fellowship funding offered by the university. Students receive support packages consisting of two years of fellowship and either two or three additional years of support, depending on their PhD program, in the form of teaching assistantships, research assistantships, or additional fellowships.
As a leading private research university, USC is engaged in a broad range of research activity, and has more than 300 graduate programs in 17 professional schools and the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences. Fellowships are available in all fields of study except clinical medicine and other programs that are subject to clinical fees. Applicants should preferably be eligible for support from CONACyT.
Applicants from Mexico please contact Angela McCracken at firstname.lastname@example.org or +52 (55) 5202-8822 for further information.
