An annual essay contest is conducted to determine the winners who are recognized each year at COMMCeleb. Applicants are asked to submit an essay that:
o Describes how they currently use or hope to use lessons from interpersonal communication to make a difference.
o Explains why this scholarship would be meaningful in terms of financial need, scholastic motivation or other reasons.
Eligibility: Communication major must have achieved the rank of junior and have at least one semester left before graduation and a minimum 2.75/4.0 GPA.
