Public relations opens doors to innovative thinking and opportunities.
To succeed in the industry, you need to cultivate a deep understanding of people, a strong work ethic, and relationships across a variety of industries.
Public relations and communications are essential for many fields, so there must be incentives for budding PR professionals to strive to be innovative and adaptive problem-solvers.
The Aspiring PR Professionals Scholarship exists to support up-and-coming PR professionals. It will be awarded to a go-getter, a person who actively and tenaciously pursues success.
The scholarship is open to all students who are pursuing a public relations, communications, or related degree and who hope to build a career in the industry.
To apply, you’ll need to tell us about yourself, your interest in public relations, and what you hope to achieve in the industry.
Tell us a bit about yourself. Why are you passionate about public relations, and what do you hope to accomplish with your public relations or communications degree?
The application deadline is Mar 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Mar 25, 2021.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 25, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
