This webpage is dedicated to the students, graduate students, and early career members of the International Communication Association (ICA). Its goal is to provide key resources for academic achievement, professional development, and work-life coherence for (graduate) students and early career scholars, so that they (YOU!) may build a meaningful, successful career.

A key component of this strategy is building and enhancing a comprehensive early career scholars' network. This website highlights several aspects of this network, including: ways and strategies to get involved with ICA and network with other scholars, news and information on opportunities available, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for early career scholars, and a mentoring platform that be will online shortly.

Students, grad students, and early career scholars are represented on the ICA Board through two representatives. Our contact details are listed below.
