We offer funding for students with a passion for PR.
Studying public relations in college is an expensive endeavor, and we believe students shouldn’t have to struggle financially to earn a degree. To help, Axia Public Relations offers a $2,000 annual PR scholarship to invest in tomorrow's PR leaders and enhance the profession.
Past scholarship recipient William Careri said, “Once I was awarded the scholarship, doors opened for me that I could not have considered before.”
Another recipient, Kyle Schachner, said, “I can’t express how fortunate I am to have started my career without having to worry about… college debt.”

This scholarship is for students who:
- Have a financial need
- Demonstrate their PR passion through volunteer, internship, and employment experiences
- Are dedicated to professional ethics and standards
Students from any accredited college or university in the nation can apply. Applicants must be juniors or seniors in good academic standing studying public relations or an equivalent major.
If this sounds like you or someone you care about, apply now or spread the word. Applications open in February and run until May 31. The PRSA Foundation will pay $2,000 directly to the winner’s university to fund educational pursuits.
The application requires either a cover letter or introduction video sharing statements of financial need, career aspirations, and past experience in PR. Applicants must also provide their LinkedIn profile and up to three PR work samples.
The PRSA Foundation offers a multitude of other scholarship opportunities. Like this one, many don’t require membership to apply. Finding one that fits can take a bite out of college costs and a load off a student’s shoulders.
Please direct any questions about the application to the Public Relations Student Society of America or the PRSA Foundation.
