Annual Page/Johnson Legacy Scholar Competition

The Arthur W. Page Center at the Penn State College of Communications (www.comm.psu.edu/pagecenter) announces its annual Page and Johnson Legacy Scholar competition for the study of integrity in public communication. The Page Center will award grants to support scholars and professionals making important contributions to knowledge, practice, or public understanding of ethics and responsibility in public communication or other principles of Arthur W. Page and Robert Wood Johnson.

The Page Center seeks to foster a modern understanding and application of the Page Principles and the Johnson & Johnson Credo by supporting innovative research, educational, or public service projects in a wide variety of academic disciplines and professional fields. This year, the center will award up to $50,000 in total grants of $5,000 to $25,000 each to scholars and professionals in all career stages. Last year, eleven academic researchers from nine universities in the United States and abroad were awarded a total of $60,000 in grants.

The themes for this year’s call for proposals are: how company credos and codes of ethics affect corporate behavior; ethics in public communication; the role of public relations in fostering corporate responsibility; curriculum development in and pedagogical approaches to ethics in public relations; and other areas of Page’s legacy, including political communication, public opinion formation and attitude change, history of public relations, and international broadcasting. Proposals for studies or projects that have potential to directly impact or influence the practice of public relations are particularly welcome.
