The Nashville Chapter of Public Relations Society of America announced on December 12, 2012, the creation of the PRSA Nashville Scholarship Endowment Fund, established in testament to the chapter’s commitment to the future of public relations in Middle Tennessee.

The fund is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization connecting generosity with need, and will be permanently endowed, ensuring the chapter’s resources will be available to support deserving students in Middle Tennessee for years to come. 

“PRSA Nashville has been privileged to provide an annual scholarship to students for more than a decade, and as the chapter continues to grow we wanted to strengthen our commitment to the next generation of communicators,” said Chapter President Todd Smith. “We are energized by the educational dreams that will be realized thanks to our endowment. This is a real milestone for public relations in Middle Tennessee.”
