Scholarships & Endowments
The generosity of WVU Reed College of Media alumni and friends helps to provide financial support for our undergraduate students, as well as professional development opportunities for both students and faculty. Private giving also provides the support needed to attract top communication professionals and award-winning journalists to our faculty through named chairs and professorships.
Because of this generosity, the College is able to award its own undergraduate student scholarships each year. Undergraduate students apply for College scholarships in a process separate from WVU scholarships by submitting a College of Media Scholarship Application in the spring semester. Students are notified via WVU Reed College of Media eNews about the application process and deadlines.
Students do not apply for individual scholarships within the College but are matched to individual scholarship funds based on scholarship criteria, including academic performance, financial need, geographic location and other parameters.
To be considered for a College scholarship, students must also file a FAFSA form by March 1 of the preceding academic year. (See the WVU Financial Aid website for more information.) The College Scholarships are awarded in the summer before the fall semester and cover the entire academic year.
