PRII & Open Doors Award Second DEI Scholarship
Congratulations to Sandra Rocha, winner of the Public Relations Institute of Ireland Scholarship 2022.
The Scholarship is part of the PRII Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Initiative and is designed to create a pathway for under-represented groups to join the profession in Ireland.
PRII partner with The Open Door Initiative to publicise the scholarship, assess and interview the candidates. The Scholarship includes a place to study on the PRII Diploma in Public Relations, a mentor to offer guidance, and a six month paid internship with an agency/ organisation. This is the second year of the Scholarship.
Sandra is from Brazil and has a background in public relations but has been finding it difficult to break into the Irish PR market.
Apart from her experience in Brazil the Judges were impressed with her powerful enthusiasm and determination to build a career in public relations in Ireland.
