Support Creativity

USC Gayle Garner Roski School of Art and Design offers a boutique 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 the next generation of prominent artists, designers, and curators.

During this unprecedented and challenging time, we have 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 help but also the resources for our students in need to be able to continue their studies.

Gifts to our scholarship funds help us to attract the top students and provide them with merit-based support. Of the over 300 students enrolled, 80% receive financial aid or scholarships. We rely on 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, designers 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 art-making supplies, upgrade our art-making 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  USC Roski. This group is made up of alumni, parents, and friends who are a solid foundation of support for our school through their role as advocates for the arts. Members engage with the USC Roski community through special access to Dean Lin-Kirk and exclusive events alongside prominent faculty, alumni, curators, artists, and designers. Click here for more information. 


We thank the many alumni, parents, and friends who give to USC Roski each year, and we invite you to join our community by making a gift today.
