The James L. Knight School of Communication at Queens University of Charlotte awards competitive scholarships for students who engage the community in digital and media literacy initiatives. These scholarships, awarded to entering freshmen, provide $4,000 annually and are renewable for up to four years.
About the Scholarship
Each Knight Scholar will work with the Knight School's Community Coordinator who will help to focus and implement student service initiatives across time. In their first two years, Knight Scholars will participate in ongoing service initiatives in the Knight School of Communication.
Before their third year, each Knight Scholar will propose a unique service project to be completed over their third and fourth years. Service initiatives may grow and adapt each academic year as scholars focus and refine their projects to incorporate new technologies, new learning, and/or new community partners. Scholars will describe and evaluate the success of their initiatives at an annual spring colloquium.
Renewal is based upon the student maintaining a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA and the successful execution of the service initiatives each year as reported at the annual colloquium and supported by the Knight School's Community Coordinator.

These scholarships are $4,000 per year and renewable each year upon maintaining a minimum of a 3.0 GPA and the successful execution of the service initiatives as reported at the annual colloquium and supported by the Knight School's Community Coordinator.
