We created the Axia Public Relations scholarship to take a bite out of college costs for students who:

1. Have a financial need
2. Demonstrate their PR passion through volunteer, internship, and employment experiences
3. Are dedicated to professional ethics and standards


The Foundation will send $2,000 payable directly to the selected student’s university on their behalf to fund educational pursuits.

"I worked through college and depended on scholarships and financial aid to fill the gap, so it's important to our PR agency to give back and enhance the profession by investing in the next generation of PR practitioners and leaders." 

Jason Mudd  |  Axia Public Relations founder

Applicants for the scholarship should be juniors or seniors in good academic standing at accredited universities and studying public relations or an equivalent major. Previous PR experience through volunteering, employment, or an internship is required.
