Dick Jones Scholarship for Aspiring Communication Professionals announced
We are pleased to announce the formation of the Dick Jones Scholarship for Aspiring Communication Professionals. The award was revealed during the CUPRAP Spring Professional Development Conference on March 9.
Dick Jones, a founding member of CUPRAP and past president, has helped launched many careers for young professionals. The Dick Jones Scholarship for Aspiring Communication Professionals will continue that spirit of goodwill, providing ambitious students the tools needed to begin successful careers.
The $3000 scholarship, awarded annually, will be given to one full-time student of good academic standing enrolled in a CUPRAP member institution or a college or university in CUPRAP’s region. The student must also have declared a major in public relations, marketing, journalism, or a related field, and have plans to pursue a career in professional communication. The award will be given at our annual Spring Professional Development Conference; the winner must be present to receive the award.
CUPRAP is grateful to Dick Jones for this generous award and for the opportunity to help propel students forward into exciting careers in public relations, marketing, and journalism.
