2019 Yankee Chapter PRSA Scholarship
Sponsored by EDvestinU
Undergraduate students, who will achieve “sophomore,” “junior,” or “senior” grade level by fall 2019, or graduate students at an accredited, degree-granting college or university in Maine, New Hampshire, or Vermont who have a declared major in a public relations-related field are encouraged to apply for the Yankee Chapter PRSA Scholarship sponsored by EDvestinU.
Entries will be reviewed by a committee of public relations professionals. The recipient will be announced in August 2019. The honoree will receive a $500 scholarship to be used toward tuition and fees in support of his or her educational pursuits.
Candidates must be undergraduates, who will achieve “sophomore,” “junior,” or “senior” grade level by fall 2019, or graduate students in a public relations-related program—including public relations, marketing, and communications—at an accredited, degree-granting college or university in Maine, New Hampshire, or Vermont. There are no state residency requirements. While Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) members are encouraged to apply, membership in PRSSA is not required.
Applications will be evaluated using the following criteria:
- Academic achievement in public relations and overall studies
- Demonstrated leadership
- Practical experience, e.g., internships, other work/service
- Commitment to public relations, particularly as expressed in the candidate’s statement
- Writing skills as demonstrated throughout the application
- Letter of recommendation
Complete this application form and return it—along with an uploaded copy of a letter of recommendation from a faculty member or PRSSA adviser—by July 31, 2019.
