Central Ohio PRSA COVID-19 Scholarship

The COVID-19 pandemic has created many uncertainties for recent college graduates as they face a challenging job market. At the same time, many younger professionals have become newly unemployed.

The PRSA Central Ohio chapter has created a COVID-19 scholarship to support these individuals. The chapter will be awarding one scholarship to include a one-year membership to national PRSA and the Central Ohio PRSA chapter and a paid registration to a chapter luncheon event. Recipients will be expected to provide a blog on their experience and knowledge learned at the event. If interested, Central Ohio PRSA will also match the individual with a mentor in a related field.

To qualify, you must be:

  • A spring 2020 graduate from a central Ohio university or college majoring in public relations, communications, marketing or related field.

-OR-

  • Or, a young PR professional (1-2 years of experience) who has recently lost their job due to COVID-19.


Scholarship selection will be based on aptitude, interest in the public relations field, academic performance and commitment to service. The deadline to apply is June 30. PRSA Central Ohio will announce the scholarship recipient winner later this summer.
