Last chance to enter CIPR and PRIME Research Fellowship competition

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and PRIME Research have announced that the deadline for applications for the CIPR PRIME Fellowship has been extended, with entries being accepted for a further seven days.

The CIPR PRIME Fellowship supports public relations graduates through a £4,000 summer research fellowship programme awarded annually to a graduating student with an interest in applied public relations research.

The winning Fellow will be invited to take up a six-week work placement with free accommodation at the PRIME Research offices in Oxford this summer. They will also receive a £3,000 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.

Applications will close on Wednesday 10 July 2013. Full details of the Fellowship and information on how to apply online can be found on the CIPR website.
