Rising Star Communicator

The Rising Star Communicator Scholarship

Each year, the Tulsa professional chapter of AWC awards up to two scholarships to outstanding student members. In 2019, two $2,000 scholarships will be awarded at the annual AWC Tulsa Professional Chapter Newsmakers Luncheon on May 1, 2019, at Southern Hills Country Club. 

We are accepting 2019 Rising Star Communicator Award Applications now through March 29, 2019. Additionally, we are adding a one-year membership to the Association for Women in Communications, thus paying for your national and local dues! Criteria and submission instructions may be found in the Scholarship Application Guidelines.

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. 

We look forward to awarding these scholarships on May 1, 2019!
