Ruth McGaffey Scholarship

The Ruth McGaffey Scholarship is given to the declared Communication major with the highest cumulative GPA who has achieved at least sophomore standing.

Students should ensure they have an up-to-date Panther Scholarship Portal General Application and the College of Letters & Science Scholarships and Awards Application for fullest consideration. Review takes place in spring each year between February and April. No additional or separate application is required; students should thoroughly fill out the Panther Scholarship Portal General Application and the College of Letters & Science Scholarships and Awards Application. Awards given in spring are for the following school year so students graduating that same spring or summer are not eligible. E.G. applications reviewed in Spring 2022 are for Fall 2022; students graduating in May or August 2022 are not eligible.
