FPRA offers financial support to students enrolled in a Florida college or university who are seeking a degree in public relations through the Florida Public Relations Education Foundation. Student members who are eligible may apply for the Dr. Robert Davis, APR, CPRC, Student Scholarship, a program held each spring and awarded at Annual Conference.
Dr. Davis (pictured standing next to FPRA founder Lt. Col. John W. Dillin) was FPRA State President in 1988. Dr. Davis' passion for his students led him to create Quotes, a student chapter of
the Florida Public Relations Association, which has gone on to teach
leadership skills to countless graduates. In 2007, in an effort to recognize the tremendous efforts of Dr. Davis, the State Board voted to name our student scholarship in his honor. Dr. Davis passed away in 2013.
