Graduate Student Scholarship Dear Communication Studies Graduate Students 2016-2017: The Department of Communication Studies is pleased to announce our Fall 2016 Graduate Student Scholarship opportunity. We are thankful for the generous donations allowing us to offer two, $3,000 awards to one incoming graduate student and one continuing graduate student. Award candidates will be considered in two separate pools; however, the criteria for assessing scholarship applications are the same. Scholarship applications should include the following documents and materials for consideration:

  • Current GPA documentation evidencing undergraduate and graduate work to date (Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher). Please note the Committee will only consider official transcript documents from qualified universities. Both Undergraduate and any Graduate coursework will be considered for both incoming and returning Master’s students.
  • One (1) representative paper evidencing student’s ability or potential to write a scholarly paper. Applicants are encouraged to submit a sample of their best scholarship; however, papers true to the student’s identified methodology and content interests will be weighted more favorably than papers that reflect methods and topics contrary to student’s personal statement.
  • Two (2) letters of endorsement articulating the candidate’s personal and academic attributes are suggested. At least one (1) letter must be from a recent professor. The second letter may be from a professor or community member with unique insight as to the candidate’s merits. Letter writers should provide a brief paragraph indicating their credibility and their relationship to the candidate.
  • Each applicant shall provide a professional statement articulating their goals and plans for achieving those goals relevant to research and subsequent work in communication studies. Statements should be no less than 250 words and no more than 500 words. Each statement should adhere to the elements for good writing outlined by the American Psychological Association or Chicago manuals for academic writing. As a guide, statements should use Times New Roman font, 12’ pitch, use 1” margins, and double-spaced text. Headers, pagination, and reference pages should be included as appropriate.
  • Applicants will provide a Curriculum Vita (CV) or current resume. Format for CV/resume should be readable in hard copy format. References to audio/video performances are allowable if accompanied by summary text.

Notes:

  1. Students must be enrolled at CSULB in Fall 2016 to be eligible for these awards. Award payments will be made through CSULB student accounts. Awards must be coordinated with other awards and financial aid, which may result in a reduction to student loans and other aid.
  2. Incoming Scholarship candidates will be recommended by the Graduate Committee
  3. Applications are due by April 1, 2016 at 5:00 pm in AS-309
