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.


Gifts to our scholarship fund 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.


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.
