Scholarship Opportunity for PRSSA Members

Are you a PRSSA member in the Rochester area? If so, PRSA Rochester has a great scholarship opportunity to offer you.

Charlie Smith, a former president of PRSA Rochester and winner of the Sharleen M. Bruse award passed away in November, 2007 after a courageous battle with cancer. In his honor, PRSA Rochester launched the Charles S. Smith Scholarship.

Charlie's legacy and commitment to the public relations profession lives on through this scholarship fund. Per Charlie's wishes, scholarships from this fund will be awarded to members of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA), and will enable the winner to supplement their PR education.

The $2,000 scholarship can be used to defray or cover the costs of attending a PRSA sponsored event, such as the national conference.

Guidelines and applications for the scholarship can be downloaded here. To apply, submit your application to [email protected] by November 30, 2016. The scholarship winner will be announced at the PRSA Rochester Holiday Party in early December.
