Supporting You

As a PRSSA student, you have the support of one of the most important charitable organizations in the public relations profession, the PRSA Foundation.

The Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization, administers most of PRSSA’s scholarships and awards. It is a philanthropic arm of PRSA, raising funds for programs that enhance the industry in its service to the public good.

In addition to supporting public education initiatives and research projects that impact public relations practice, the Foundation is committed to investing in and providing support for the next generation of professionals. Annually, the Foundation dispenses the awards funded by the Champions for PRSSA.
