AWM Austin is proud to award a scholarship to a college sophomore or junior studying media or a related field at a university in the Austin area (within a 40-mile radius from Austin). Consideration will also be given to students attending other colleges who graduated from an Austin area high school and maintain an Austin area permanent address. The scholarship will be awarded in April to be used for undergraduate tuition only and will be administered by the respective Financial Aid Office of the recipient. Scholarship payment will go towards the next academic semester enrolled in, and will not be applied to semesters currently enrolled in or already completed.
The AWM Austin Scholarship is open to those who: have completed 45+ hours of college course work by the previous December; will not be graduating prior to the upcoming December; have an overall GPA of 3.25 or higher or a 3.0 or higher in declared major courses; and are currently enrolled as a full-time student (carrying a minimum of 12 hours per semester, internship hours will be considered), with a declared major in radio, television, film, digital media, public relations, advertising, marketing, communications, journalism or broadcasting. Current students with relevant college or professional media work experience who intend to pursue careers in media (or related field) may also be considered.
