Becoming a WWU Viking is something we all take pride in. How each of us got here is a story unique to each one of us. We all know deciding to come to college is a four-year (or more) commitment. And it’s not a cheap commitment at that. We Are WWU is a for students by students campaign that was started last year to help raise money for a scholarship for a student who is a declared communication studies pre-major, minor, or major. Due to the efforts of the We Are WWU team last year and the success of the event, one lucky student applicant (which could be you) will earn a $1,500 scholarship that will help ease the stress of paying for the degree the student (you) achieve in your time here at Western.
If you are a junior or senior who is declared in some shape or form within the communication studies department (pre-major, minor, or major) then you have a shot at the money! Applications can be found outside CF 299 and need to be turned in with two letters of recommendation that are current within the last year whether it’s from your portfolio or another scholarship doesn’t matter as long as it showcases your character and desire for the scholarship. There is also an essay portion to attach when submitting your application but it’s only 500 words! You can probably write 500 words in your sleep! Submit a hard copy of the application, two cover letters, and the essay all together in the drop box on top of the mailboxes in CF 295 on Monday, May 23rd for your shot at the $1,500 grand prize of free money for college!
