Don Watkins / IPC Mid-Career Scholarship

The Idaho Press Club’s Don Watkins Scholarship awards $500 for any Press Club member to use for any training or project that will improve the working press in Idaho. (Yes, that does include going to that conference you’ve been wanting to attend!) The only catch: You must share what you learn with Press Club members through a talk or an article in the Communicator. Any Press Club member is now eligible for this scholarship.

To apply, just send your resume and a proposal for how you’d spend the money to: Idaho Press Club, P.O. Box 2221, Boise, 83701, or e-mail it to

Applications are due February 15 of each year. The winner is announced at the Press Club’s annual awards banquet in May.
