The USC Research Gateway Scholars Program provides services aimed at promoting undergraduate student success through mentorship experiences, graduate school preparation, research training, career development, and a series of academic skills building initiatives.

Participants are awarded competitive stipends and scholarships throughout their participation in the program. Students acquire mentoring from professors, graduate students, and professional staff members. The USC Office of Undergraduate Programs provides administrative oversight for the program and makes available opportunities for all students to participate in an array of academic, co-curricular, and funding programs. The academic focus of the program complements the services and other resources available to all students through the USC Student Affairs Division. Participating students, referred to as Research Gateway Scholars, begin the program by taking a Research Methods Course in the Spring. Year-round and during the Summer Research Institute (SRI), Research Gateway Scholars are advised by USC faculty members, Ph.D. students, and program advisors and administrators.

The core components of the USC Gateway Scholars Program include a Spring Research Methods Course, Summer Research Institute (SRI), Cohort Residential Life & Cultural Program, Annual Research Symposium & Poster Session, GRE Test Preparation, Travel Grant Awards for Conference Attendance & University Visitations, Publication Opportunities in an Undergraduate Journal, and Year-round Seminar Series and Academic & Career Advising.
