Pursuing graduate study is an investment that will provide many opportunities for you in the future. USC recently underscored its commitment to the fields of communications and digital media with the Annenberg Graduate Fellowships awarded to a select group of about 100 scholars and practitioners each year. The Annenberg Fellows are chosen for their potential to produce bold new ideas and innovative professional works. They are drawn from a variety of academic programs in the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, the School of Cinematic Arts and the Viterbi School of Engineering.
All applicants accepted for admission to the M.A. in Specialized Journalism programs will be considered for nomination to the Annenberg Fellowships which will provide full tuition remission, health and dental benefits and a $20,000 stipend for living expenses. Selection is highly competitive, and early application is encouraged for best consideration. For summer 2013 admission, the application deadline for scholarship consideration was January 31, 2013.
Please consider all forms of financial aid, including need-based aid, to finance your graduate studies.
