Join Trojan Guardian Scholars

Trojan Guardian Scholars (TGS) is primarily a support program for students who are admitted to and choose to attend USC as a first-year or transfer student. It is not a pre-college or direct admission program. To apply to USC,  visit the USC Admission website

We welcome all students who have experience in the foster care system, regardless of the length of their case or their current living situation. TGS also welcomes students who at any point have been wards of the court, emancipated minors, experienced homelessness or in kinship care.

If you are a current USC student and believe you might be eligible, please complete and submit the form below. All submissions are confidential.
