Each year, the top incoming communication majors can apply to join High Point University’s Communication Fellows Program. Students select a specialization as a media, sport, or publicity and event fellow and are closely mentored by faculty members with professional and academic backgrounds within that specialization. They work together on creative and research projects, travel domestically to examine trends in their communication industry and receive extra training in professional development. They will graduate with a polished portfolio, a resume and the interviewing skills needed to launch a career in the communication industry of their choice.
Communication Fellows will receive a $3,000 scholarship renewable annually based on academic performance and continued participation in the program. This is in addition to any Presidential or High Point Scholarship. Fellows must meet GPA and professionalism requirements to be awarded continuation of their fellowship into the next academic year.
