Sacramento Press Club Scholarships Available

From Sacramento Press Club
To Journalism Professors, Teachers, Professionals and Students:

The Sacramento Press Club is proud to announce that in 2018 we will award $34,000 in seven scholarships to students who are preparing for a career in journalism or a closely related field. We hope you encourage all standout students to apply!

The seven scholarships range in value from $4,000 to $8,000. Community college students who are transferring to four-year colleges will get special consideration for the $4,000 Nereida Skelton Journalism Scholarship. Our six other scholarships are offered to college juniors, seniors or graduate students who are focusing on journalism. Details about the scholarships and the eligibility criteria, as well as a link to our online application, can be found here. We are also attaching a flyer that can be printed and posted on bulletin boards.

We know that as tuition costs increase, financial support can be especially crucial for students. We need your help to get the word out in time for this year's application period. Students should gather materials and set up a Google Drive folder for work samples before accessing the online application. Applications must be submitted online no later than midnight PST on March 31st.  

We appreciate any help you can give us in keeping our contact list current. If you know of colleagues or organizations that should be added to our outreach list, or if you have any updated contact information, please send it our way.

With thanks,

Robin Epley
