Ed and Nancy Quinn Scholarship in Journalism and Mass Communication

The Ed and Nancy Quinn Scholarship in Journalism and Mass Communication will be awarded to 2 to 5 students. Preference in selection is given to students who need a ‘boost’ from a mentor. Examples are: a student with financial need, a student who exhibits exceptional talent but who could benefit from extra encouragement/recognition, a student who has an incredible internship opportunity and could benefit from funding assistance, and a student who otherwise experiences obstacles to their academic success.

About the process: Students do not apply for individual scholarships with the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Students fill out one application and the scholarship committee matches students to awards. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, academics, study area and involvement.
