Wichita Professional Communicators is proud to offer an annual $2,000 scholarship to students pursuing a communication field of study at Wichita-area colleges and universities. Do you know a student who could benefit? Fields of study include journalism, graphic design, photography, public relations, advertising, marketing, digital media and more.

WPC is now accepting applications for our 2022 scholarship, and the complete application must be submitted by March 7 to be considered. Students can find the application requirements on our Scholarships page and apply online.

The award will be presented to the winning candidate in spring 2022 at a WPC meeting and is intended for the 2022-23 academic school year. Included as part of the scholarship is a one-year membership to WPC, as well as to our affiliated state and national organizations, Kansas Professional Communicators and National Federation of Press Women.

For questions or more information, visit our website or contact WPC Scholarship Committee co-chairs Wilma Moore-Black at wilma.black@wichita.edu or Judy Conkling at judy.conkling@gmail.com.

“We have a strong, supportive membership that believes in giving back to grow our own journalists,” Moore-Black said. “The entire membership has many opportunities to get involved in WPC, individually and through group projects. We are small in numbers, but a collective group that has big hearts and works hard to generate first-class events.”

Funds for the scholarship come from donations and WPC events, like the annual mixer, featuring a silent auction.

We hope you’ll help us spread the word. Thank you for supporting WPC and future communication professionals as well.
