Scholarships 101: How to make your application stand out in the crowd
Spring is scholarship season: With more than $30,000 in National Press Club scholarships available this year, how can students help their applications stand out?

Join the National Press Club Journalism Institute for a behind-the-scenes discussion on what scholarship judges say makes — or breaks — an applicant’s chances of earning one of five National Press Club scholarships. This year’s deadlines are fast approaching, with the first round due Feb. 15.

During this virtual session, scholarship judges will share tips to help them develop strong essay responses, select and submit their work samples, and prepare their applications. We’ll also leave plenty of time for questions about the scholarships, application process, and eligibility.

2023 National Press Club scholarships include:
