Dean Joan Metcalf Schaefer Scholarships
 
The Dean Joan Metcalf Schaefer Scholarships committee has awarded over $1 million to over 300 undergraduate and graduate students at USC. 

Dean Joan has always urged students to fortify their minds as well as their spirits by studying liberal arts.  She considers programs like music, fine arts and poetry essential to building what she calls "a foundation for life and a love for learning."  "If you don't know of mankind's journey, you aren't really involved," she added.

In keeping with this philosophy, the Dean Joan Metcalf Schaefer Scholarships in the College reward students each year who follow in Dean Joan's footsteps of scholarship, leadership and service.  "It is the ultimate honor to have a living legacy named in one's lifetime," she said.  

Since its founding in 1992, the Dean Joan Metcalf Schaefer Scholarships committee has awarded over $1 million to over 300 undergraduate and graduate students at USC majoring in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.  To learn more about the scholarship and to obtain and application, click here.
