Now accepting applications for the PRSA Hoosier Chapter Diversity & Inclusion Grant Program

Thanks to another generous contribution from our friends from Hirons, PRSA Hoosier Chapter will offer our second annual Chapter Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Grant.

The grant is our chapter’s effort to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within our membership and profession. With these funds, we will have the ability to provide our public relations colleagues who identify as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color (BIPOC) with financial aid to advance their careers by pursuing an Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) or covering membership costs.

Hirons, a full-service Indianapolis ad agency, and a current sponsor of the PRSA Hoosier chapter will pay for up to two PRSA Hoosier Chapter membership scholarships, valued at $320 each, and one APR scholarship to help with fees associated with obtaining the certification, valued at $385.

The deadline for applications is April 21, 2023. Grant recipients will be announced during the Pinnacle Awards dinner on May 10.

The PRSA Hoosier Chapter is grateful to Hirons  for supporting our efforts to improve diversity in our chapter and profession by underwriting these grants and we look forward to our continued collaboration.
