The S.L. Harrison Memorial Scholarship Fund has been formed to honor Professor Stanley “Stan” L. Harrison, a beloved faculty member who imparted his love of writing to hundreds of School of Communication students. The Scholarship Fund awards assistance for tuition and expenses to deserving public relations students in the SoC who demonstrate a passion for writing.  

In an effort to bolster the Scholarship Fund and solidify its presence at the SoC, the Autumn Ridge Foundation (ARF) has committed $12,500 to the fund and is prepared to match any and all gifts/donations up to an incremental $12,500.  These matching donations from ARF can add up to as much as $25,000 to help promising public relations students and perpetuate Stan’s legacy at the SoC.

Alumni, parents and friends who wish to honor Professor Harrison’s legacy and help public relations students may make a gift online at Please select “Other” designation and add “S.L. Harrison Memorial Scholarship Fund” into the other designation box.
