Welcome! The USF Foundation Scholarship Office is here to offer support to the USF student community through scholarship aid from the USF Foundation donors. We are committed to being the best resource of customer service to past, present and future USF students and educating and encouraging the development of these students into future philanthropists. We also strive to continually foster lifelong relationships with our donors through good stewardship and to facilitate collaboration and mutual respect with our University colleagues on all campuses, colleges, units and departments.
Thanks to the generosity of alumni and friends, the USF Foundation awards over $5M in free privately funded scholarships to USF degree-seeking students each academic year. Scholarships range from $250 up to the cost of attendance. These scholarships may sometimes be awarded in addition to other financial aid you may receive such as grants, other scholarships and loans. Please keep in mind that you can only receive a financial aid package that equals or is less than your unmet need. Your unmet need is calculated by USFAS (University Scholarships & Financial Aid Services).
To be considered for a USF Foundation Scholarship, please apply early and follow the instructions listed for each award. We encourage all students to apply.

Good luck and Go Bulls!
