Since 2009, FMPR has awarded two $1,000 scholarships annually, one to a Kauai student and one to a Pennsylvania student pursuing their bachelor’s or graduate degree. Please read below for an overview of the FMPR Scholarship, how to apply, personal statement instructions, and our online application.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate how they fulfill the above criteria through their completed application, a personal statement, and school transcripts. Detailed instructions follow.
Scholarship monies will be released to awardees after the announcement of the FMPR Scholars in June and after the scholars provide FMPR with documentation that they have been accepted for admission by a college or university for the following school year. There will be no deferment scholarships.
Financial need is not necessarily a factor in being awarded the Fujita & Miura Public Relations Scholarship, however, students who have faced and overcome major life obstacles, including financial hardship, will be given preference as long as they meet the other criteria.
Fujita & Miura Public Relations Scholarships are awarded without regard to gender, gender identity, marital status, race, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, social background, or disability.
