Don Watkins Memorial Scholarship 2016; opportunities for mid-career and student applicants

Every year, the Idaho Press Club awards $2,000 or more in scholarships to working journalists and future journalists. It’s all a part of the Don Watkins Memorial Scholarship Program.

We gather applications from across the state and award a $1,500 scholarship to one Idaho high school graduate who is currently enrolled in college, preparing for a career in journalism or communications.

We also award a $500 Mid-Career Scholarship to any Press Club member who will use the money toward a project or professional development opportunity that will improve the working press in Idaho.

Details about each scholarship are available on our website at Scholarship entries are due February 15 each year.
