USC Gayle Garner Roski School of Art and Design offers a specialized art and design school experience within a large research university. Located in the heart of Los Angeles, home to an internationally recognized art and design community, our school offers a unique environment for creativity, experimentation, and collaboration. Your donation enables our students to become the next generation of prominent and thought prokoving artists, designers, and curators.
During this unprecedented and challenging time, we established the USC Roski Emergency Student Fund to support students at the Roski School who are experiencing financial difficulties and unforeseen circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Your support not only provides financial assistance but also resources for our students to be able to continue their studies.
Gifts to our Scholarship Fund help us provide students with merit-based support. With over 300 students enrolled, 80% receive financial aid or scholarships. We rely on the philanthropic contributions from supporters like you to provide a world-class USC education to students with financial needs, and to offer opportunities beyond the classroom such as travel study tours, teaching assistant positions, and post-graduate work study.
Gifts to our Annual Fund address the school’s immediate needs. With your support we are able to hire faculty who are leading artists, designersm and scholars pursuing cutting-edge research. Their programs and curriculum ensure that USC Roski remains at the forefront of arts education. In addition, your gifts allow us to offer supplies, upgrade our facilities, and provide state-of-the-art equipment and gallery space across our three campuses.
With any gift to USC Roski of $2,500 or more, you are invited to become a member of our Dean’s Circle. The Dean’s Circle brings together our most dedicated annual donors who are committed to the future of our school. This group is made up of alumni, parents, and friends who are the foundation of support for our school through their role as advocates for the arts. Members engage with us through exclusive events alongside Dean Haven Lin-Kirk, prominent faculty, alumni, curators, artists, and designers. Click here for more information.
