Media Fellows Scholarships are the Washington Media Scholars Foundation’s essay-based scholarships. They are currently awarded twice annually with deadlines in mid-July and mid-November.
Successful Media Fellows Scholarship submissions include an essay that includes the student’s personal financial need statement as well as a description of their academic achievements and career aspirations. We seek to support students whose academic interests are at the intersection of advertising and public policy. This includes (but is not limited to) Advertising, Marketing, Communications, Business, Political Science, Strategic Media and other majors.
Media Fellows scholarships have been awarded to all classes, but juniors and seniors are highly encouraged to apply. In addition to the essay, a compelling recommendation (signed and on letterhead) from an academic advisor or instructor is required, as well as a current resume’. Finally, a brief phone interview is required.
Students currently enrolled in a college or university are encouraged to apply, using the online application form below. Please note: rising freshman are ineligible for Media Fellows Scholarships. Finally, Media Scholars Fellowships are one-time only awards.
