Carthage offers a number of competitive scholarships to prospective communication, graphic design, and public relations majors. These scholarships are awarded based upon a cumulative review of a candidate’s application for admission to Carthage, in addition to a review of the applicant’s portfolio by members of the faculty of the Communication and Digital Media Department.

Scholarship reviews for 2023 will take place in person on February 25. There is also a virtual option. Please add finearts@carthage.edu to your contacts to ensure you receive all of 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.
