NCA Grant and Scholarship Opportunities

July 14, 2017

October 1, 2017 is the deadline for applying for both the Advancing the Discipline Grants and the Dale G. Leathers Memorial Fund to Promote Communication Studies in Emerging Democracies.

Advancing the Discipline grants are one-time awards of up to $5,000 for projects that align with the goals of NCA’s strategic plan and have widespread impact beyond a single individual, department, campus, or NCA unit. The Leathers Memorial Fund provides grants for Communication Studies projects that benefit emerging democracies and their peoples. Learn more about NCA’s grant opportunities.

In support of its commitment to promoting diversity within the Communication discipline, NCA offers travel grants for student members of NCA’s caucuses (Asian/Pacific American Caucus, Black Caucus, Disability Issues Caucus, Caucus on LGBTQ Concerns, La Raza Caucus, and Women’s Caucus) to attend the Annual Convention. Learn more and apply by September 8.

The National Communication Association invites students to apply and compete for the NCA Legacy Scholarship award. The NCA Legacy Scholarship seeks to broaden the Communication discipline’s relevance to various publics by providing a $1,000 scholarship to a local college student pursuing a degree in Communication, Journalism, or related program within the host city/region where the NCA Annual Convention is being held. The scholarship award will be competitively given to a student based on both an essay related to communication and civic responsibility, and a convention theme-related speech presented during the NCA Annual Convention. The 2017 Annual Convention will be held November 16 – 19, 2017, in Dallas, Texas. Learn more about the eligibility requirements and nomination procedures here
