Downs Matthews Memorial Scholarship

 

The IABC Houston Student Scholarship is in memory of Downs Matthews, an IABC Houston pioneer, to foster the communication profession. Undergraduate and graduate student applicants should be majoring in a field of communication. Scholarship assistance is based upon academic performance, leadership potential, and financial need.

The Downs Matthews Memorial Scholarship is a one-time award in the amount of $1,000. IABC Houston pays scholarship funds directly to the student. Scholarships are awarded without regard to race, color, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. 

Catherine Burch Graham was awarded the 2019 Downs Matthews Memorial Scholarship at the annual IABC Houston Bronze Quill Awards Gala held at the Junior League of Houston. Catherine is pursuing a masters degree in corporate and organizational communications from Northeastern University in Boston.

If you have any questions about the scholarship application process, please contact us at [email protected].
