George Brown Scholarship

Every year the Central Michigan Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (CMPRSA) Awards the George Brown Memorial Scholarship to an outstanding PRSSA junior enrolled in a communication-related program of study at Michigan State University. CMPRSA also selects an outstanding student practitioner from among the PRSSA ranks. Both students are honored in April at the annual PACE Awards Program and at the Department of Advertising Awards Luncheon.

PRSSA members interested in the scholarship should fill out the application and submit a resume and at least two letters of recommendation for consideration. Writing and work samples are helpful, but not required.

Students are encouraged to nominate their peers for the outstanding practitioner award. CMPRSA feels PRSSA members are most aware of each other's accomplishments and can offer the best insight for the selection committee as to who is worthy of this award.

The person applying for the scholarship must:

  • Be a PRSSA member in the Ned S. Hubbell Chapter at MSU
  • Have junior standing at MSU by fall

Criteria used for selecting recipient:

  • Leadership in PRSSA and other student organizations
  • Commitment to the public relations field (professional development, education of others)
  • Academic Achievement

If interested, contact a board member of the MSU PRSSA.
