The selection of the first PRomise Scholar will soon begin. the first phase of applying is complete. 29 post-graduate students from five institutes applied by registering during July. By end of August they will send essays to the Secretariat based on which a 4-5 member jury will evaluate them during September.
We will announce the names of the jury once the evaluation is complete in order to maintain credibility of this prestigious scholarship. The topic was – Public Relations needn’t always be a short-term fix for businesses; it can be a critical strategic communications tool too. The details of the scholarship are available here or at bit.ly/PFESSAY
We thank the three media outlets who wrote about the scholarship and one media outlet that supported us with free inventory. We will write our next three blogs on the subject soon – once all essays have been submitted, once the jury gives its verdict and once the winner is felicitated.
