Financial Aid


Admissions Scholarships

The Office of Admissions offers a variety of scholarship opportunities to incoming students. You can find additional information regarding application deadlines, scholarship awards, and a variety of other helpful financial aid and scholarship resources online at our admissions scholarship and financial aid page.

Bulls Business Network Scholarships

Students admitted into ZAP are also admitted into the Bulls Business Network in the Muma College of Business, therefore they can apply for special Muma scholarships beginning in the spring of their first year. These scholarships are typically offered to juniors and seniors.

Study Abroad Scholarships

ZAP does require participation in study abroad during the summer after their first year. USF offers scholarship money to assist its students in global travel through the Education Abroad Office. It is highly recommended that ZAP students review scholarship opportunities and begin applying by November of their freshman year.

Preferred deadline for summer study abroad trips: February 15, 2017

More information can be found at the education abroad page.

Applying for Financial Aid

When applying to USF and to the Zimmerman Advertising Program, it's very important to complete the FASFA by the recommended deadline in order to receive the most possible financial aid.

Reminder: If you are starting at USF during Summer B, you will need to complete a FAFSA for the previous year in addition to the FAFSA for the following school year.
