The Communication Scholarships are awarded to passionate and talented students who will be pursuing a degree in the field of communication. Scholarships are awarded based on an interview and examples of our work such as writing samples. All prospective students are encouraged to apply.

Communication scholarship reviews for 2022 will take place in person on February 19 and 26, and virtually on February 5 and 12. Complete an application for a scholarship review. Application forms will be available on October 1.

You will receive an email confirmation with more details once your application is processed. Please add finearts@carthage.edu to your contacts to ensure you receive all the information about your portfolio review. 

If you need to change or cancel your scholarship portfolio review meeting, please contact finearts@carthage.edu as soon as possible. This is especially important for cancellations, as other students may be on the waiting list and could benefit from a slot becoming available.

THE INTERVIEW

The scholarship interview is your opportunity to convey your interest and passion for communication. What draws you to this field? Are you interested in communication theory? Human interaction? Body language? Other things that may interest you could be photography or film. And what about you — what would you like to be involved in at Carthage? Lambda Pi Eta, the honor society of the National Communication Association? Our newspaper? Getting to know you is an important part of this interview.
