All upper-level students are invited to apply for one of the Department of Strategic Communication’s scholarships for the coming academic year. These scholarships are merit-based and, in most cases, added to your University merit-based awards.
For any awards other than the prospective student scholarships, you should have an overall 3.0 GPA or higher and have demonstrated an enthusiastic interest in a pursuing career in strategic communication. If you do not believe you will have a 3.0 overall GPA after the Spring semester, please do not apply.
These scholarships traditionally are available to juniors and seniors but scholarships do occasionally become available for sophomores.
The Department of Strategic Communication currently has two scholarships available to students:
- Doug Newsom Scholarship for Strategic Communication
- Bruce Neal Scholarship for Strategic Communication students with an interest in Texas tourism (minimum 3.0 GPA)
If you are interested in applying, please contact our main office for more information. You can download a copy of the application form here.
