The Institute on Black Life administers a number of scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students that were established to provide academically talented students, from diverse backgrounds, the opportunity to study at the University of South Florida.

To be considered for a scholarship, APPLICANTS ARE REQUIRED to complete a financial aid (FAFSA)* application available from the USF Office of Financial Aid or on line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Applicants of the Ivory Club Scholarship are not required to submit a FAFSA due to international student status. Other requirements may apply.
