IMC & DMC Scholarship Donor Roll

Thank You

The Reed College of Media sincerely appreciates the distinguished members of the Reed College of Media community who, through their generous support, are helping us achieve the goal of endowing the IMC & Data Scholarship Fund.

About the IMC & Data Scholarship Fund

The IMC & Data Scholarship Fund originated through a commitment from Reed College of Media employees, Chad and Cathy Mezera, both graduates of the College who have focused their careers on supporting students and shaping tomorrow’s leaders through education. Following the Mezeras’ initial creation of the scholarship, the WVU IMC and Data community responded in tremendous support, with many alumni and faculty committing their support to grow the scholarship. Today, the IMC & Data Scholarship Fund is close to reaching the level required for endowment, after which it will forever provide annual scholarships for deserving current students in the IMC and Data programs offered by the WVU Reed College of Media.

We Still Need Support!

In 2019, 44 students applied for this scholarship, so support is still needed to help our deserving students achieve their educational goals. Gifts of all amounts are appreciated, and every dollar committed to the scholarship directly supports the students. If you would like to join us in supporting IMC and Data students through this scholarship, please visit In recognition of your support, additional donors contributing gifts of $250 or more will be commemorated on this Donor Recognition Wall until the scholarship reaches full endowment.
