Master of Arts in Communication


Graduate Fellowships in Communication

Graduate fellowships for the M.A in Communication program are highly sought-after programs that provide you with hands-on learning and reduced tuition costs.

Communication Fellowship Process

The Master of Arts in Communication program is still accepting fellowship applications on a rolling basis! 

We strongly encourage you to apply as soon as possible for your best chance at a preferred placement. Applications will be accepted until all fellowship positions have been filled.

The process is as follows:

  1. Submit your online application. Be sure to indicate your fellowship interest within your application.
  2. Submit your initial ranking form. Students who are accepted for admission and invited to interview for a fellowship will be eligible to review and rank their preferred positions. If you are invited, your invitation will include a deadline for submitting your selections. Please note: we do not guarantee that you will be invited to interview for your top selections.
  3. Complete your site interviews. First round of interviews will take place. 
  4. Submit  your  post-interview rankings. After the interviews, both students and sites must complete and submit their post-interview ranking forms, ranking their preferences for final placement.
  5. Receive your match notification. Match letters will be sent to all students and supervisors.

Please note: Participation in the fellowship placement process is NOT a guarantee of a fellowship.

Questions? All interested students should email graduate admission.
