HBCU Graduate & PR Agency CEO Partners with Black Entrepreneurs to Create Scholarships
Offering $10,000 in Scholarships to Black Girls Attending College Fall 2021
As a Black woman, Candice is familiar with the absence of scholarships and funding opportunities that are available specifically for young Black women and more specifically, those who aspire to be in Public Relations. Through the "CNPR Future Publicist Scholarship," CNPR is looking forward to seeing the futures of these young women blossom and take the industry by storm.
"I am elated about the launch of the scholarship during a very significant month for Women! As I am a proud Black woman entrepreneur, I am also very proud of being an Alumnus of an HBCU, Morgan State University. With one of my scholarships going to a young lady attending Morgan, it makes this experience that much more beautiful. It is so important to give back and to provide opportunity for young Black women. I am looking forward to seeing these future Publicists shine with the assistance of Candice Nic0le Public Relations," says Candice.
The scholarship is for Black girls currently enrolled in the GFAC Girl Ambassador Program, a workforce development program for high school girls designed to prepare them for the future of work. This scholarship will help provide the financial means for the girls to pursue higher education and their dreams.
Investing a total of $10,000 in scholarship funds, other Black entrepreneurs including The Ezer Agency, MissionKey Communications, LLC and Author Mia Brabham have also created scholarships through the GFAC nonprofit.
To qualify for the "CNPR Future Publicist Scholarship", applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Why you decided to attend Morgan State University or another HBCU
- Why you want to become a Publicist
- How do you want to disrupt the PR industry?
The submission period runs through April 30, 2021. Official winners will be announced in June for the Fall 2021 semester.
