Scholarships offered for students majoring in communications
State college public relations officials are doing their part to encourage students to continue their interest in the area of communication at Mississippi’s two- and four-year colleges with two $500 scholarships.
Students applying for the College Public Relations Association of Mississippi scholarship must be majoring in one of the following fields of study: public relations, communications, journalism, advertising, mass communications, political communications, crisis management, graphic design or other communication-oriented major.
Scholarship applicants must be in good standing and present three letters of recommendation from individuals connected to their academic institution. This includes college advisers, high school teacher/official, home-school teacher, etc. Students may be recommended by an active CPRAM member.
The applicants must complete in full and return the scholarship application to the committee no later than Feb. 15, 2013 and must include a 500-word essay entitled, “What I Hope to Offer the Field of Communication.”
Recipients can be awarded the scholarship for more than one year, but they must reapply. The scholarship committee reserves the right to make its decision based on need, merit and the number of applicants each year.
CPRAM reserves the right to withdraw this scholarship if a student withdraws from school during the award year, changes his/her major, fails to maintain a 2.0 GPA or other grave instances of misconduct.
The committee will announce the winner(s) during its annual conference held in May 2013, and the scholarship will then be awarded for the 2013 fall term.
For more information, contact CPRAM scholarship chairman Steve Diffey at 472-9068 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Donna Thomas at email@example.com.
