All upper-level students are invited to apply for one of the Department of Strategic Communication’s scholarships for the coming academic year. The department also nominates students for other scholarship opportunities throughout the year. In general, these scholarships are merit-based, and in most cases, are added to your university merit-based awards.

To be competitive, you should have an overall 3.0 GPA or higher and have demonstrated an enthusiastic interest in pursuing a career in strategic communication. 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.
