The Project

Many College of Arts and Sciences students rely on financial aid and scholarships to help them earn their
degrees. The uncertainty created by the pandemic has directly impacted students’ financial needs, and they face the mounting academic challenges associated with this burden.

Oftentimes, just a few hundred dollars can mean the difference between making a tuition payment or
withdrawing from USF altogether. With your support, our goal is to provide these CAS students the funds they need, when they need them, so they can continue pursuing their degree.

Who We Are

The College of Arts and Sciences is the intellectual heart of the University of South Florida. We are a community of teachers and scholars who remain dedicated to creating an environment of learning, discovery and innovation that prepares all of our students to address complex social and scientific problems and enhance the quality of life for people and communities.

The impact

By supporting the USF College of Arts and Sciences Student Success Fund, you can make a life-changing
difference in the lives of our students and community. With your help, we can provide emergency relief funding for students in need.

what your gifts will do

Students currently facing job loss, unexpected medical bills, utility shutoff, homelessness and/or food insecurity will have immediate access to much needed financial and service aid during this time, enabling them to continue focusing on their course of study and avoid additional obstacles that may inhibit their ability to obtain their degree.

As a donor to the College of Arts and Sciences, you make these and other opportunities possible for our community of teachers, learners and problem solvers. Your gifts are a true testament to your belief in USF’s commitment to excellence and student success.
