HPRA-LA recognizes the hard work and determination that comes with being a student of Hispanic descent especially given the increasing cost of attending an accredited college or university. Since the initiation of the program, HPRA-LA has awarded close to $275,000 to students with the intention of aiding with tuition and related expenses. HPRA-LA strives to assist Hispanic students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievements and involvement in the Hispanic community.
“The marketing industry is still facing a significant lack of diversity among corporate and agency PR teams,” said Stephen Chavez, president of the HPRA-LA chapter.
“HPRA-LA is dedicated to supporting these deserving students to ensure that talented Latino students continue to break through and enter the communications field.”
HPRA also offers scholarship recipients a complimentary annual membership, providing students with networking and educational opportunities to meet with professionals in the PR/Marketing and journalism world. Professional Panels, education, networking, job and internship opportunities are all readily available through the HPRA membership.
