A new scholarship has been created at Western Connecticut State University by the Newtown-based Mediassociates President and CEO Scott Brunjes. The Mediassociates “Better Thinking” Scholarship is available to a full-time senior student who is majoring in marketing, interactive marketing or communication – media studies. A minimum overall GPA of 3.0 and a GPA of 3.25 in the student’s major is required.
Also required is the submission of a short essay that addresses either “What do you hope to accomplish by choosing your field of study?” or “How has ‘Better Thinking’ helped you accomplish a personal goal?”
Assisting Brunjes in the selection of the annual recipient of the $2,000 scholarship will be a committee that currently consists of the five WCSU alumni who also work at Mediassociates.
