The four-year Icon Agency/ FCF Scholarship Program rewards two students by offering financial and mentoring support to directly help further their education.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with the Future Communicators Foundation and RMIT University to offer a scholarship to the next generation of PR professionals,” said Joanne Painter, co-founder of Icon Agency.
“The importance of bridging the gap between industry and academia cannot be underestimated. I’ve spent many years serving on university advisory boards and witnessed first-hand the significance of strengthening the ties between these two worlds,” Painter said.
“Our decision to support the Future Communicators Foundation Scholarship program is an extension of our social responsibility program and Icon’s decade-long commitment to mentoring and advising students”.
