Racing for Scholarships - Communication Department

Who We Are

The OU Department of Communication provides a broad-based liberal arts education and promotes communication research and development. Communication courses explore the process of human interaction in interpersonal, intercultural and political contexts. Graduates from the OU Department of Communication find challenging careers in higher education, management, public relations, consulting, nonprofits, and government.  It is consistently one of the largest departments in the College of Arts and Sciences based on the number of undergraduate majors each year.

The Project

We are racing to raise money for our student scholarship fund! Help support the OU Department of Communication win the race! Philip Graham, Shay Glover, Alaina Zanin, Candace Foutch, and Michael Kramer are all participating as a relay team in a marathon to raise awareness about the Communication department student scholarships, and we need your help as well. 

The Impact

“I was awarded a fellowship during my fourth year. The financial support allowed me to spend an extended period in the research setting. I would not have been able to finish my dissertation on time, or possibly at all, without this support and for that I am truly grateful."  - Alaina Zanin, PhD Alum, Relay Team Member

Donations raised throughout our campaign will go directly to support student scholarships and graduate fellowships within the Department of Communication. Scholarships within the department help us to recruit and retain the best and brightest students, keeping the doors of opportunity open to all future Sooners!

Please Share

Through our campaign, we hope to reach as many people as possible, so please share our campaign link on social media and through email! We appreciate your dedication to the OU Department of Communication students. Feel free to use our hashtag: #CommDept


THANK YOU for your support! Your gift will change a student's life. We are grateful for your generous contribution to the education of students in the Department of Communication! 

Choose a giving level


Energy Booster

Help our students with an energy boost to the scholarship fund. This level covers the cost of a meal at Couch for students on campus.


Sideline Cheerer

Similar to when someone cheers at a race, our students need your encouragement to succeed. This donation covers a years worth of mandatory cultural and recreation services fees for a student.


Sole Supporter

Many of our students need support as they journey through their time at the University. A donation of $75 covers the cost of renting a textbook or purchasing a used one.


Motivated Miler

Help motivate our students to finish their semester strong. A gift at this level pays the cost of tuition and fees for approximately one hour of credit for an in-state student.


The Finish Line

Prevent our students from postponing their race toward graduation by contributing to their mandatory semester fees.
