ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from Jones County Junior College.

State college public relations officials are encouraging students to continue their interest in the area of communications at Mississippi's community and senior colleges by offering two $500 scholarships high school seniors and current college students can apply to receive.

Students applying for the CPRAM (College Public Relations Association of Mississippi) scholarship must be majoring in one of the following fields of study: public relations, communications, journalism, advertising, mass communications, political communications, crisis management, graphic design, or other communication-oriented majors. The scholarships could be awarded to a student entering or enrolled at the state's two-year colleges or the state's four-year colleges. The student must also be a full-time student.

Scholarship applicants must be in good standing and present three letters of recommendation from individuals connected to his/her academic institution. This includes college advisors, high school teacher/official, home-school teacher, etc. Students may be recommended by an active CPRAM member.

The applicants must complete the scholarship application and have it returned to the scholarship committee no later than Feb. 13, 2015. Applicants also must include a 500-word essay entitled, “With all the changes being made in the field of Communications, what skills do I have to keep up with these changes?”

Students receiving the scholarship can be awarded the scholarship for more than one year, but they must re-apply every year. The scholarship committee reserves the right to make its decision based on need, merit and the number of applicants each year.

CPRAM reserves the right to withdraw this scholarship if a student withdraws from school during the award year, changes his/her major, fails to maintain a 2.0 GPA or other grave instances of misconduct.

The committee will announce the winner(s) during its annual conference held in May 2015. The scholarship will then be awarded for the 2015 fall term.
