Founded in 1967, the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications. We advocate rigorous academic standards for public relations education, the highest ethical principles and diversity in the profession. PRSSA is made up of nearly 7,000 students and advisers organized into 325 plus Chapters in the United States, Argentina, Colombia and Peru. We are headquartered in New York City, and led by a National Committee of PRSSA and PRSA members. We have a rich history of support from our parent organization, the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), which offers professional development, networking opportunities and news.
Coming into its fourth year, PRSSA has partnered with FINN Partners to provide PRSSA members from underrepresented backgrounds with a virtual preview of their mentor/career program. "Partners for Diversity: PR & Marketing Career Preview" will enable students to learn more about the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in public relations, marketing and communications and what a day in the life of an agency professional is like. The program will provide students with an agency mentor, and opportunities to participate in client calls and campaign brainstorms, an optional writing assignment and more. All participants who complete the program will have an opportunity to apply for upcoming internship positions.
The deadline to apply is Monday, February 26 at 3 p.m. ET. All accepted applicants will be notified by March 8th. This year, the program will be offered from March 18th - 20th.
