Fulbright Students

Fulbright Scholarship Recipients

The USC Viterbi School of Engineering is proud to partner with the Institute of International Education (IIE) to host Fulbright scholars in its Master's and PhD programs. To date, we have welcomed Fulbright scholars from many countries around the world, including Argentina, Mexico, Pakistan, Panama, Poland, Romania, Thailand, and Turkey.

Master's Students

If you received a Fulbright scholarship to pursue a Master's of Science program in the U.S., you qualify for additional funding from the Viterbi School. Awards can range from $7,500 - $20,000 in tuition remission for graduate-level coursework. To be considered, please send a copy of your scholarship letter and your placement officer's contact information to viterbi.gradadmission@usc.edu after you are formally admitted to USC.

PhD Students

If you are receiving a Fulbright sponsorship for PhD studies, the Viterbi School will work closely with Fulbright to provide additional funding from your academic department in the form of a research or teaching assistantship. Please contact Andy Chen, Director, Doctoral Programs, at andysche@usc.edu with any questions regarding our PhD programs.

Please contact William Schwerin, Senior Director, Graduate Recruitment for more information about USC Viterbi’s standard agreement with IIE and other possibilities for collaboration.

At USC, you will find lots of resources and opportunities to build communities and to network. It will be upon you to embrace these opportunities and to take the most out of them. Connect with people, make friends, tell your stories, and FIGHT ON!
