Communications Scholarships for US and Caribbean Nationals

The SpeakEasy M.E.D.I.A. Foundation is offering scholarship awards to U.S. and Caribbean nationals. This is for those who are interested in pursuing courses in media, broadcasting or public speaking.

The Foundation opened the application process for two grants which will be awarded to a high school student from the US and another from the Caribbean region where Hall featured at many inspiring tourism and media conferences.

Each grant will total $2,000 and will be awarded to individuals pursing media-related studies at the college or university of their choice. Each winner will also receive a fellowship to attend an upcoming edition of the Caribbean Media Exchange on Sustainable Tourism (CMEx), which Hall helped to produce, or another media event in the U.S. or Caribbean.

Applicants must either be a graduating high school senior in the US or 5th/6th Form graduating secondary school student in the Caribbean with an overall grade point average of at least 2.5 or C+ average. Participation in extracurricular activities, community work/social service, school, church, volunteer or work experience is required.

Applications for the scholarships and study grants must be received by May 1. The scholarship criteria and application form can be found at the following:
