Scholarships and Financial Aid

All students with financial need should apply to Financial Aid and Scholarships. This office awards scholarships to incoming first-year students based on academic merit.

The School of Journalism and Mass Communications has a limited number of scholarships provided by donors who often specify the majors or the geographic areas from which recipients may be selected. Most scholarships from the school are reserved for students already enrolled in journalism courses. To receive a need-based scholarship from journalism, the student must have submitted the FAFSA form and been determined to be eligible. Merit-based scholarships also are offered.

Scholarship applications are available beginning October 1 from the scholarship coordinator, 117 Stauffer-Flint Hall. The application deadline is December 1. Notices of scholarships awarded by national journalism organizations are posted in Stauffer-Flint Hall and the Dole Center when they are received.
