Every year the San Francisco Public Relations Round Table awards scholarships to a select group of students in the public relations, communications, journalism, marketing and allied academic fields who have shown a strong interest and involvement in public relations beyond the classroom. We are particularly interested in rewarding students who are using their public relations, writing and social media skills to benefit the public and worthy causes.
