Appropriate for all



Since 1979, the Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) Foundation has been quietly making an impact in the public relations field. Officially a part of CPRS since 2019, the Foundation is a non-profit charity, which supports the communications community through scholarships, sustainability, and connection.

The Foundation has been working with local society chapters, such as CPRS Calgary and CPRS Vancouver Island, post-secondary institutions, and organizations raising funds for scholarships for Indigenous, Black People and People of Colour Communications students.

CPRS members and non-members can discover the impact of the CPRS Foundation's scholarships and what they have meant to their recipients. Particularly, learn more about the Indspire Indigenous Scholarship and the BPOC Scholarship with the Black Business Professional Association.
