The Olive M. Cone Scholarship

The Department of Communication Studies is pleased to announce its call for self-nominations for the 2019 Olive M. Cone Episcopal Scholarship. Established by Mr. L. W. Cone of Crawford, GA, in honor of his wife, Olive M. Cone, the Cone Scholarship recognizes the outstanding achievement of a Communication Studies major with a tuition scholarship for the fall semester. All majors are eligible to apply regardless of religious affiliation. The award for Spring 2020 will be $1000.00. Applicants must, therefore, be enrolled in Spring 2020 to be eligible for the award.

The deadline for self-nominations is October 31, 2019.

Communication Studies majors wishing to be considered for the award must submit a packet of materials that includes the following:

  1. A letter of self-nomination that describes the student’s outstanding academic achievements and commitment to the discipline of Communication Studies;
  2. Documentation of (a) overall GPA and (b) GPA in the major;
  3. A resume;
  4. Any additional evidence of academic achievement in the discipline. Although the award is based primarily on academic achievement, financial need may also be considered. Therefore, demonstration of financial need may be included.

A single hard copy of all application materials must be submitted by the deadline to Dr. Roger Stahl, Undergraduate Coordinator, Department of Communication Studies, 617 Caldwell Hall. 

A formal announcement of the award will be made at the Fall Public Speaking Contest in November, date TBA.
