The application deadline for the two $2,500 PRSA Puget Sound scholarships is rapidly approaching. The Sally Heet Memorial Scholarship and the Horace and Sally Revels Cayton Scholarship are awarded annually to students who are entering their junior or senior years and are pursuing careers in public relations.
If you know of a student who is eligible, encourage them to apply before the April 17, 2012 deadline under the Students section of the PRSA Puget Sound website. Because both scholarship applications require transcripts, students should leave one to two weeks to complete all of the requirements.
Thanks to all of our PRSA Puget Sound Members who contributed to the Scholarship Fund in 2011. Contributions to the fund can be made via the link on the bottom of the PRSA Puget Sound home page at http://www.prsapugetsound.org.
