William Michelet Scholarship Application

This $1,000 scholarship award is granted in honor of the late William “Bill” Michelet - LSU professor, PRAL founder, and an accomplished public relations practitioner who believed in giving something back to the community through his profession. It is awarded annually to a student studying at a Louisiana college or university who has demonstrated proficiency in the field of public relations with a strong commitment to community involvement.

The writing portions – essay (30%) and news release (30%) – are heavily weighted by the William Michelet Honorary Award judges. Please take care to submit carefully written and proofed writing samples. The judges reserve the right not to grant the award if applications do not merit presentation. Judges count GPA and honors/awards as 20% of the applicant score, while campus and volunteer activities and work experience count for 20% of the judge’s score.

The 2021 application deadline is Wednesday, March 31.
