Scholarships 

The Joseph Patrick Allen Endowed Scholarship

TLLA has funded many scholars over its 60 year history.  Members have donated $45,000 to the Marshall School’s Masters of Business for Veterans,  $35,000 to the Keck School of Medicine  and $15,000 to the Dean Joan M. Schaefer scholarships.   In 2001 TLLA established the Joseph Patrick Allen Endowed Scholarship Fund to commemorate the life and memory of Joe Allen who served as Vice Provost of Enrollment Services at USC from 1993 to 2001.  The scholarships are awarded to outstanding students in the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences for their junior year and can be renewed by applying again for their senior year.  

J.P. Allen Scholars embody true Trojan ideals through personal and academic achievements.  Applications are available in October at admission@dornsife.usc.edu or by calling (213) 740-5930, and are due around February 1st.  Final candidates are  interviewed by the TLLA Scholarship Committee.
