The cost of obtaining a top-notch education continues to rise, and many students are concerned about financing their education. The School of Journalism and Mass Communication offers a variety of financial support options for its students. For the undergraduate major, university-level financial aid is available; however, the school also offers a number of generous need- and merit-based scholarships.
Thanks to the generosity of our alumni, the School of Journalism and Mass Communication has one of the most generous scholarship programs on campus. Last year the school awarded more than 90 scholarships ranging from $500 to $10,000.
All current undergraduate students in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication are eligible to apply, including seniors planning to graduate in the upcoming spring or summer terms. Students simply fill out one application and the scholarship committee then matches the best student to the best scholarship. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, academics, study area and involvement.
Applicants will be asked to write brief statements about their career goals, professional experience and campus/community involvement. A pdf version of your current resume is required.
Applications for the annual scholarship competition are available on Dec. 1 each year, and recipients are announced no later than early April.
