Student journalists, like their professional colleagues, dedicate themselves to covering their communities across platforms. Juggling classwork, part-time work, and journalism activities can often go without reward. The National Press Club and NPC Journalism Institute are proud to administer four scholarships honoring promising future journalists serving their communities. The National Press Club and the Journalism Institute are currently accepting applications for The Richard G. Zimmerman Scholarship.
The Richard G. Zimmerman Scholarship is named for a long-time National Press Club member who died in 2008 and endowed a scholarship in aid of high school seniors who wish to pursue a career in journalism. Recipients receive a one-time scholarship of $5,000. Students do not need to be a U.S. citizen to apply for this scholarship. Applicants must have at least a 3.0 GPA. Applications run from December until the due date.
