Wall of Scholars

Discovery Scholar Prize

The Discovery Scholars program honors USC students who excel in the classroom while demonstrating the ability to create exceptional new scholarship or artistic works. Like sailors on an unexplored sea, Discovery Scholars blaze new paths, rather than simply following the course chartered by others.
