The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and PRIME Research UK have announced the 2015 launch of their annual six-week funded fellowship opportunity for one recent or soon-to-be graduate, with the deadline for applications closing on 14 May.

The six-week Fellowship award, now in its sixth year, supports and encourages a graduate student interest in applied public relations research as a career opportunity, based at PRIME Research in the scenic city of Oxford.

The Fellowship will provide the winning candidate experience working in a fast-paced media environment with access to PRIME’s global media analysis systems during a six-week period. Throughout the six weeks, the Fellow will complete a research paper contributing to the body of knowledge in applied public relations research. The winning graduate will receive £3,000 for their time and efforts during the Fellowship, with an additional £1,000 upon competition of a high-standard publishable report of their findings.

Now in its sixth year, the Fellowship has provided the opportunity for ambitious graduates to show off their research skills and work with some of the globe’s leading brands, with many candidates offered full time management positions at PRIME Research afterwards.

Jessica Turner, last year’s Fellowship winner and soon to be a Junior Project Manager at PRIME Research, said of her time in Oxford: “It has been exciting to contribute to a body of research that has the potential to be used in real company strategy and to work on a project that is newsworthy and timely.”

Richard Bagnall, CEO of PRIME Research UK and leading measurement professional within the field, noted:

“We are delighted to be working with the CIPR yet again to provide this invaluable opportunity to one worthy graduate. The Fellowship, now in its sixth year, aims to generate interest in public relations measurement and analytics, promoting career opportunities within research”
