Scholarships for USC? Watch
I have a GPA of 4.1-4.3 (depending on whether a couple of things count up to 4 or 5), and a good portfolio and awards history, but I don't know if any scholarships are available to me - it seems most of the scholarships are for "1st generations" or local students, or "Black Community", or "Latino Community" etc. There don't really seem to be any full scholarships for "just a white guy and he's not an american".
The info on their site is a little confusing - on one page, it says that there are scholarships available to international students. On the other page, it says that Non-US citizens aren't entitled to financial support. Then on the other page, it says international students are eligible for three different full-tuition scholarships. Then on another page it says that all international students have to provide proof that they can pay, up front, all tuition and living costs up front for the first year by a letter from the bank. So right now I'm pretty confused.
Anyone have any ideas as to what the deal is? Because the course is $196,000.

There are; they are few and far between.
Scholarships and financial support are different things. You may get a scholarship if you apply. You won't get financial support.
USC isn't the 'elite of the elite', but the average USC student isn't someone to scoff at either; as such, these scholarships will be extremely competitive - don't count on getting one.
In order to get your Visa to enter the country, you have to demonstrate that either (1) You have all the necessary money; (2) you have a loan to cover all of the expenses; (3) You have a scholarship to cover all of the expenses; (4) You have a combination of loans, scholarships and money to cover all of the expenses.
Welcome to the American University system.
Likely chances of scholarship with a >4.0 GPA, and a First Class BA Hons, with an industry portfolio?
Thanks for replying. It says that I need to have the proof of finances to apply, and scholarships are only considered AFTER applying. Well, if I can afford it, I don't need a scholarship, confusing!
