Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

University of Southern California

Los Angeles, California



Through its Neighborhood Academic Initiative, a comprehensive six-year college-preparatory program for low-income and minority students in the seventh through 12th grade, the university offers young people in nearby underserved neighborhoods who meet admissions criteria the opportunity to attend USC with full financial support. This grant provides bridge support during a two-year transition period to ensure there is no disruption in services for participating students.
