The Amigos de Garcia Scholarship in Mass Communication was established by Emmy-Award winning producer and FSU Alumnus, Greg Garcia.
The scholarship requires applicants to submit one mass-communication creative work (i.e. writing sample, audio or video recording, etc. in standard electronic format) which will be judged by the Scholarship Selection Committee and ultimately reviewed by Mr. Garcia himself. Do not pass up this opportunity to show off your best work, you never know what doors could be opened to you!
Your creative work must be your own personal creative work, and only one submission per applicant. Class group projects are not acceptable entries you’re your work must reflect your stand-alone talent and creativity. This is your chance to step out of your comfort zone, and express yourself through your writing, audio, or video recording.
If you plan to submit an application, it is recommended that you make your intentions known to the department as soon as possible to assist you in developing a suitable entry by the deadline. Mr. Garcia is VERY interested in seeing lots of applications as shown by this video below, which he created to start that creative juice flowing! (Note: The deadline listed at the end is for the regular cycle – this second chance opportunity deadline will be October 1, 2014.
The Department of Mass Communication believes that higher education should prepare students for career success, but also civic success. We strive to stimulate intellectual curiosity, imagination, rational thinking, thoughtful expression, and independent learning - skills necessary for success in all mass communication fields.
To accomplish these goals we couple practical, hands-on experience with theoretical course work and support a strong program of co-curricular, extracurricular, and internship activities to help students understand and appreciate the crucial role mass communication has in our society.
We provide students with a well-rounded media-oriented experience while also allowing students to create an area of specialization such as audio production, video production, media management, multimedia design, journalism, public relations, events planning, and others.
