Scholarships & Awards

The School of Communications offers a variety of scholarships and awards to students meeting the criteria established for each. For the 2024-25 application season, the application period will begin December 26, 2023 and end February 1, 2024. Scholarship applications must be submitted by midnight on February 1. Applications will be submitted 100% online. Scholarships awarded during this period are applied to the upcoming Spring 2024 term through Winter 2025 semester.

1. Each student may fill out up to TWO scholarship applications: One for scholarships in his/her study emphasis (advertising, journalism & sports media, or public relations), and one for “general” scholarships open to all study emphases, including communications studies. Links to pages with scholarship descriptions and criteria are found below.

2. Carefully read the criteria for each of the scholarships for which you are eligible and use the link found on that page to apply.

3. There are no individual applications for every scholarship. Instead, students will fill out one online application for their emphasis (and/or one for general scholarships, if they choose) and will be considered for all scholarships in that category based on qualifications.
