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
  • Creativity
  • School and work experience
  • Community involvement
  • PR or communications experience
