TOWN & GOWN SCHOLARSHIP FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES
Organized in 1904 as the Women's Club of the University of Southern California, Town and Gown was given its present title when Mrs. Rufus B Von Kleinsmid became its president in 1922. Its name exemplifies the understanding and amity among those members from Town (the Community) and from Gown (the Academic Circle).
As friends of USC, our purpose is to develop and award scholarships to outstanding students and to encourage social and intellectual programs for both the campus and community.
Town and Gown's Scholarship program continues to be a major interest. The scholarships are made possible by private donors, membership dues, and a benefit luncheon held each spring.
Our members take pride in the students awarded to hold these scholarships. The care and attention given by Town and Gown and by the University to their selection gives reason to believe that each of them will be a credit to the University and that the unselfish generosity of the benefactors will be rewarded by their accomplishments.
Beyond its investment in student potential, Town and Gown has provided the University with the Student Administrative Services Building (originally Elizabeth von Kleinsmid Dormitory), the melodious Carillon, Town and Gown Foyer, as well as the new Town and Gown Mall and Patio.
