The International Summer Scholars Program at the University of Southern California (USC) Sol Price School of Public Policy provides a bridge for students who aspire to pursue professional careers or graduate work at top universities in the United States. Tailored to international students or domestic students with a strong international orientation, the program provides an ideal stepping stone for academic or professional pursuits in public policy or related felds such as sociology, economics, political science, urban planning, public administration, environmental studies, sustainable development and many others.


Through this two-week intensive summer program, you will gain in-depth exposure to public policy issues in California and beyond.


The curriculum draws upon the expertise of USC Price’s world-class faculty, who deliver lectures on governance, policy analysis, urban planning and health administration.


You will witness these lessons in action during several professional ? eld trips. Anticipated destinations include Los Angeles City Hall, the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Gri?th Park and a sampling of Los Angeles’ many diverse neighborhoods.


To support the transition to the next stage of your academic or professional journey, the program also features a broad array of academic enrichment activities, including close mentorship from faculty and current graduate students, writing workshops and graduate school application guidance. Professional development opportunities include a panel discussion, networking event and other opportunities.


You will cap off the experience by producing a professional-level policy memo about a critical issue in the comparative contexts of California and another global locale.
