- Be an active graduate student in Applied Communication Studies at SIUE
- Have accumulated 24 or more hours of graduate work by the end of the semester in which the award is given
- Show some combination of outstanding grades, meaningful participation in service activities, visible contributions to the discipline, and/or creativity.
