Martha Jolly Grant Scholarship

The Martha Jolly Grant Scholarship was established in the School of Mass Communications (now the Robertson School of Media and Culture) at Virginia Commonwealth University with gifts from the family and friends in the memory of Martha E. Jolly Grant ’86. The scholarship is awarded to a student in the Robertson School of Media and Culture who has an interest in pursuing a career in public relations or advertising. Preference will be given to a nontraditional, returning student and/or one who is a member of a previously underserved population. Candidates must have a minimum GPA of 3.0. Prospective recipients with an undeclared major must have completed their freshman year and demonstrate an interest in pursuing a career in advertising or public relations.
