Grace Ford Salvatori Community Service Tuition Scholarships

The Salvatori Community Scholars program provides support to advanced graduate students who are doing community-based research whose experiences with community-based organizations can lead to new opportunities for service-learning students at USC.

Scholar(s) work with JEP’s Associate Director for Research and Academic Affairs, USC faculty, and one or more community organizations to develop service-learning projects for undergraduate USC students. Projects are to be jointly determined by the needs of the community, the academic goals of the service-learning course, and the abilities and interests of the Scholar, and might include participatory action research or direct service activities. All projects must involve undergraduate students in work that builds their knowledge and skills while supporting the Scholar in a community-centered project. Ideally, the service-learning project will closely correspond to the scholarly activities of the Salvatori Community Scholar.
