The Houston PRSA chapter formed the Public Relations Foundation (PRFH) in 2001 as a way to support the growth and development of the public relations profession.
How We Promote & Develop Our Profession
As members of the PR profession in the Houston area, we have a unique opportunity to support future practitioners studying communication disciplines right in our own community.
The PRFH supports the growth and development of our profession in two meaningful ways:
Awarding scholarships to college students.
Providing grants and awards to educators.
The PRFH annually awards a $3,000 scholarship to an undergraduate or graduate student studying PR/communications or who is either attending a university in the Houston area.
Thanks to generous contributions from our donors, we now have the option of awarding a second scholarship, up to $2,000, to another student, should the PRFH Board of Trustees agree that another applicant is deserving of a scholarship.
Additionally, the James W. Hart Jr. Scholarship was established as an endowed fund within the PRFH. It was funded by James Hart in recognition of the Legacy Award winner.
