Press Club to award $1,500 scholarships

April 25, 2014 is the deadline for submitting entries to the 2014 scholarship competition sponsored by the San Francisco Peninsula Press Club.

Competition is open to high school, community college, college and university students from the 11 Bay Area counties who are planning a career in print, broadcast or photo journalism.

The San Francisco Peninsula Press Club typically selects one high school student and one college student to receive the $1,500 scholarships named for Herb Caen, the late San Francisco Chronicle columnist.

Scholarship funds will be paid to schools the recipients plan to attend, or are attending, to defray college-related expenses.

Work published, broadcast or webcast from fall 2013 to the April 25, 2014, submission deadline is eligible. This is a change from previous competitions Print and photo entrants should send:
    • A one-page resume. 
    • Three to five clippings mounted on letter-sized white paper; photos on CD; and video on DVD-R. Print entrants must include at least two clippings of news writing and may complete the submission with examples of opinion and feature writing. 
    • A letter of recommendation from an instructor in journalism, communications or English.
Entries should be sent to:
