IMPORTANT: Students who are not officially in the communications program as of the scholarship deadline are only eligible to apply for talent awards or the Communications Development Advisory Board Scholarship (assuming all criteria is met). Both of these are open to incoming freshmen, transfer, and pre-comms students planning a major in communications. If you have applied to the program and are awaiting acceptance status, you are NOT eligible to apply for any other school scholarships.
