Student Application for Diversity & Inclusion Conferences

The School of Communications is committed to providing financial support and opportunities for students with diverse backgrounds. One such avenue for support is attending national conferences that allow students to network and learn from minority professionals who are engaged in meaningful work related to communication and sport.

The school offers limited funds to support students from diverse backgrounds to attend an affinity conference related to a school-related discipline. For more information, read the Student Application for Diversity & Inclusion Conferences.
