Communications Scholarships

Effective communication is key to a successful career and successful relationships. Conveying one's intended message is practically an art form. Many would argue that it absolutely is and, if they majored in communications, might just argue the point successfully. Students who major in a subject within the college of communications or those who directly major in communications can enter an interesting array of fields. They can find careers in journalism, photography, radio announcing, advertising, publishing, graphic design and more.

Such fields are exciting and appealing and, therefore, competitive. One of the best ways to get your foot in the door is to receive a good education, both as an undergraduate and potentially as a graduate student. And usually, you get what you pay for — a good but expensive education.

Fortunately, there are plenty of communications scholarship awards are available. There are even communications scholarships completely restricted to such students, meaning that all those amateur journalists, editors and media moguls who have declared other majors will be automatically disqualified from such competitions. That’s bad for them but great for you and your odds of winning these scholarships.

On top of major-specific awards, communications students have a good chance of winning scholarships that involve essays or other persuasive components — after all, you wouldn’t be majoring in communication if it wasn’t something you enjoyed! Contests for photography, filmmaking and new media can also cater to a communications major’s unique skills. As a student of human interactions, you’re more likely to nail all the aspects of etiquette in the scholarship search, as well. And since communications is such a broad category, you might find additional college scholarships for your specific concentration, in addition to your major.

To find communications scholarships you may be eligible to receive, check out our free scholarship search at Scholarships.com. With information about more than 2.7 million scholarships and grants, you’re bound to find something. If it’s not the major that makes you eligible, it will be something else. Either way, get the education you need to get ahead...and the money you need to pay for it.
