HFPA Awards

The Department of Journalism & Public Relations is thrilled to announce the Internship Equity Awards. Twelve JPR internship students will receive $1,500 each thanks to a donation from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The awards underscore the importance of internships for career entry and success in mass communication fields by providing financial support to help first-generation students, students of color, and those coming from low-income backgrounds focus more fully on internship experiences and career readiness activities.

The awards will be open to journalism and public relations MAJORS only. Eligible students must also complete an internship through the JOUR 498: Internship course during the 2021-2022 academic year (fall 2021 and spring 2022 semesters). The department will start accepting applications for the inaugural internship equity awards in late January 2022; winners will be announced later in the spring semester.
