School of Communication


There are three types of Scholarships available to School of Communication majors: School of Communication Scholarships, Cleveland State University Scholarships and external scholarships.

For Cleveland State University Scholarships, you must follow the guidelines and apply here.

For external scholarships, check here and also check on the bulletin board outside of MU 233. Neither CSU nor the School of Communication administer these scholarships. Any information posted about external scholarships is provided for your benefit but is not guaranteed to be up to date or accurate information.

A single application form is used for all scholarships. Applications are not necessary to be included for scholarship consideration, but are recommended. Applications are available in MU 233 or by clicking on any of the links in the table above. Please return completed forms to MU 233.


Students can apply for more than one scholarship, although awards are typically limited to one per applicant. Awards are merit-based, favoring those with a G.P.A. of at least 3.0, and will be credited to their Fall tuition balance. Past winners or recipients of other scholarships will be lower consideration priority. The Financial Aid Office reserves the right to reduce your loan amount if you receive a scholarship on top of loans.
