An Interesting Scholarship Opportunity for Students of Communication

Recently, this scholarship opportunity came to our attention and we thought it might be of interest to those  in religion and communications.

Each year, the Religion Communicators Council offers scholarships for students interested in religion communication to participate in RCC’s national convention, scheduled this year for April 4-6 in Indianapolis. The scholarship – which is open to undergraduate and graduate students — also includes a two-year membership in RCC. The Religion Communicators Council is an interfaith association of more than 400 religion communicators working in print and electronic communication, advertising, design, marketing and public relations. Founded in 1929, the council is the oldest public relations professional association in the United States and is one of the 11 member organizations who participate in the Universal Accreditation Board. Previous scholarship recipients have used their RCC networking and experiences to garner positions on the national and international levels.

The scholarship includes: paid registration for the convention; paid hotel room (double occupancy) for four nights; up to $400 for travel and meals; and paid membership to the RCC for 2013 and 2014.  Scholarship recipient would be expected to arrive in Indianapolis on April 3.  The scholarship application deadline is Jan. 31.
