Rising Star Communicator

The Rising Star Communicator Scholarship

Each year, the Tulsa professional chapter of AWC awards up to two $1,500 scholarships to outstanding student members. These scholarships will be awarded at the annual AWC Tulsa Professional Chapter Newsmakers Luncheon on May 2, 2018.

We are accepting 2018 Rising Star Communicator Award Applications from now through March 30, 2018. Additionally, we are adding a one-year membership to the Association for Women in Communications. We are paying for your national and local dues! 

Winners are selected based on demonstrated excellence in communications, positive contributions toward communication on campus and/or in the community, demonstrated commitment to a career in the communications profession and scholastic achievement. The Scholarship Application Guidelines include the criteria and submission instructions. 

We look forward to awarding scholarships again in May 2019!
