The Norman Topping Student Aid Fund is the only
student initiated, student funded, primarily student administered
scholarship in the nation.

The purpose of the Norman Topping Student Aid Fund (NTSAF) is to assist students with high financial need who demonstrate an extraordinary level of community awareness in their pursuit of higher education at the University of Southern California.

The NTSAF offers supplemental scholarships to entering freshmen, transfer and graduate students based on the individual USC Financial Aid package of each Scholar. Applicants residing in areas surrounding the University Park Campus and Health Sciences campus and first-generation college students are given primary consideration in the selection process. Please note that the scholarship is not limited to these populations.
