Our Scholarships


Joseph Patrick Allen and TLLA Trojan Tribute Scholarships

TLLA has funded many scholars over its 60-year history. Members have donated to the Marshall School’s Master of Business for Veterans, the Keck School of Medicine 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 Davide Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences for their junior year and can be renewed by applying again for their senior year.
