Each year, the New York Women in Communications Foundation — a 501c3 — awards 15-20 scholarships to graduating high school seniors and undergraduate and graduate students who intend to pursue or further a career in communications.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence, need and a demonstrated commitment to the field of communications. New York Women in Communications and its Foundation are committed to inclusion and diversity. Read about the Class of 2013 Scholarship Winners.
Scholarships are generally in the amounts of $2,500, $5,000, and $10,000 and are awarded to 18 students: Two graduating high school seniors, 11 undergraduates, and five graduate students.
In addition to our general scholarships, we offer sponsored scholarships with specific qualifications. Most are funded by corporations or foundations that retain the right to impose qualifications, which may include, but are not limited to, a candidate’s declared major, area of study, or demonstrated skill; age or year of study and personal background.
Read more on recipient obligations and candidate qualifications and requirements. The application process will begin in November. You can also read a transcript of our Dec. 11, 2012, NYWICI Twitter chat that focused on how to apply for a scholarship.
