Local News

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Non-traditional Southern University students studying mass communication have a chance at a $500 scholarship.

Lifestyle and empowerment publication SwagHer Magazine & Media presents the Felder-Barnes Media Scholarship.

“I know how hard it can be as a non-traditional student in school, and usually, our heads are in a different space because we have real-world things going on outside of school. When I attended school, I was all alone outside of my kids, so I had no support system. This is my way of saying you are not alone. Someone somewhere is rooting for you,” said Francheska Felder, founder of SwagHer Magazine & Media.

Scholarship recipient requirements:

  • Must attend Southern University A&M College
  • Must be a non-traditional student
  • Must be a Mass Communication major
  • Minimum 3.0 GPA
  • 500-word essay about the applicant and how they can benefit from this scholarship

The deadline to apply is September 25, 2021. Those interested in applying should visit
