Public Relations Scholarships


The School of Advertising and Public Relations depends on the financial contributions of its graduates and friends to advance and maintain the quality of its programs. Money to support student travel, faculty travel, and the purchase of classroom instructional equipment comes almost entirely from outside monies. In addition, generous alumni donations have established and maintain a strong program of scholarship support for undergraduates.

If you would like to contribute to the general scholarship fund to support either advertising or public relations students, please send your contribution to
