Each year, New York Women in Communications — a 501(c)(3) — awards 15 to 20 scholarships to graduating high school seniors and undergraduate and graduate students who intend to pursue or further a career in communications. Current Honors students Jennifer Walsh ’18 and Anna Gardner ’19 received scholarships last year along with Park School students Lexy White ’19, Emma Noblesala ’19, and Emma Beltrandi ’19.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence, need and a demonstrated commitment to the field of communications. Scholarships are generally in the amounts of $2,500, $5,000, and $10,000. In addition to general scholarships, NYWICI offers sponsored scholarships with specific qualifications. Most are funded by corporations or foundations that retain the right to impose qualifications, which may include, but are not limited to, a candidate’s declared major, area of study, or demonstrated skill; age or year of study and personal background. The application deadline is January 26, 2018.
