University of Southern California Establishes Endowment to Fund Study-Abroad Opportunities in Africa

The University of Southern California has launched the Africa Student Fund, an endowment that will assist students at the university who want to study abroad in Africa. Students can use funds to travel to Africa for study at a university, for research, internships, or for service-based learning opportunities.

The fund was established with a $100,000 donation from Adam Clayton Powell III, the vice provost for globalization at the University of Southern California. Students interested in participating in the program must have a 3.5 grade point average.
