Monday is the deadline for this easy-to-apply scholarship for PR students
I proudly serve as the president of the Richmond Public Relations Foundation. Every year, we give out three $1,500 scholarships to public relations students in Virginia.
The deadline to apply is this Monday, Oct. 12 at 11:59 EST.
If you’re a junior or senior, I hope you’ll consider submitting materials. Get all the details here.
Applying is easy. You’ll need to submit a one-page essay focused on “why you want to work in PR and how you have prepared yourself for a career in communications,” a resume and your (official or unofficial) transcripts.
Here are some areas judges look for in essays:
- Enthusiasm for PR
- Use of AP Style
- Error-free writing
- School and work experience
- Community involvement
- PR or communications experience
