Kwittken + Company Sponsoring College Fellowship

Kwittken + Company (KCO) announced today that it is sponsoring the Columbian College’s Luther Rice Undergraduate Research Fellowship at The George Washington University. The school is Aaron Kwittken‘s alma mater (he’s the CEO and managing partner at KCO). And though the description of the fellowship makes no mention that the recipient’s research must be PR-focused, Kwittken envisions that’s where the money will go.

“I hope this award will continue to attract young, bright minds to public relations, public affairs and media, help advance these disciplines and continue to uphold a high professional standard for the communications industry as a whole,” he said in a statement.

The fellowship funds research undertaken by an undergrad with help from a faculty mentor. The program offers the student recipient $5,000 with an additional $1,000 for the professor. KCO will fund the fellowship for three consecutive years and offer its own support. More details about the fellowship here.
