Cincinnati Public Relations Firm Develops Scholarship Program

Greater Cincinnati’s EMG Creates Program to Assist in Industry Growth, Diversity.

Cincinnati, OH, October 22, 2008 --( Northern Kentucky’s largest fully integrated public relations and marketing consultancy Eisen Management Group continues its commitment to the growth of the Greater Cincinnati community. Today, the agency announces the creation of their EMG Scholarship Fund designed to assist minority students entering college who are pursuing a degree in public relations, communications or journalism.

According to EMG president Rodger Roeser, the firm is committed to fostering the educational initiatives of local young people, and in particular, minority students. The scholarship is open to all high school seniors and an application to receive the scholarship can be requested by filling in a form on the agency’s website at The judging for the scholarship and the selection is solely at the discretion of EMG and its scholarship committee. The scholarship will be awarded in May, 2009.

“I have the profound privilege of serving this industry in a variety of capacities, often speaking to young professionals or those getting ready to enter the profession as they learn in our colleges and universities,” Roeser explained. “But, I felt that our industry and in particular our industry leadership was not doing enough to reach out at a critical time when future decisions about career are being made – high school. Our profession can only benefit from increased diversity of both minorities as well as young men, and I am humbled that our firm is in the position that we are able to make a positive impact and begin to address this issue.”

The scholarship fund is the third leg of EMG’s continued commitment to the growth of community, small business, and future leaders. Operation: Outreach was launched in April, 2008, and has assisted eight local organizations with pro bono public relations, graphic design, advertising and website development work totaling more than $50,000. EMG’s Small Business Development Assistance Programs have also provided several Greater Cincinnati small businesses valuable marketing and public relations resources and senior counsel at no charge, giving them basic foundational tools to assist in their growth initiatives.
