CIPR and PRIME Research support graduates with £4000 prize for summer research fellowship programme
The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has today announced its support for public relations graduates through a £4000 summer research fellowship programme to be awarded in partnership with PRIME Research.
The CIPR PRIME Fellowship is awarded annually to a graduating student or recent graduate and encourages interest in applied public relations research as a career through the opportunity to receive work experience and financial assistance from PRIME Research.
The winning Fellow will be invited to take up a six-week work placement with free accommodation at PRIME Research’s offices in Oxford this summer. They will also receive a £3000 stipend with an additional £1,000 reward for the successful completion of a high quality paper which contributes to the body of knowledge in applied public relations research, to be published by the CIPR.
We are pleased to be working with the CIPR yet again to provide this invaluable opportunity to one worthy graduate. The Fellowship, now in its third year, aims to generate interest in applied public relations research, promote career opportunities within research, and ultimately assist graduates as they transition from academia to employment.
Once again, we are delighted to be partnering with PRIME to extend this fantastic opportunity to our student members and students with an interest in public relations. The experience gained at PRIME will be a great start for graduates as they begin their careers and look towards their professional development.
Full details of the Fellowship and information on how to apply online can be found on the CIPR website.
