A pledge over time, the Fred N. Hogg Endowed Scholarship in Communication will begin distribution next year. The award will increase annually, and distributions from this fund will be used to provide a scholarship to cover the full cost of tuition and educational expenses for one undergraduate student majoring in Communication at Murrow College. The award is renewable annually for up to four years.
Military veterans, students active in the ROTC or serving in the National Guard with a minimum GPA of 3.5 will receive primary consideration. If there are no applicants that meet the primary criteria, the scholarship gives secondary preference to a student with a minimum GPA of 3.5 who has directly transferred to the WSU Murrow College with an associate of arts or another transfer degree.
The Hogg family’s vision for this award is that it is directed in its entirety to make a significant impact on one student, rather than broken up into smaller awards. Their ultimate goal is to grow the endowment to provide a full-tuition scholarship to one deserving student per year.
