Scholarships for students from St. Louis area

The Press Club of Metropolitan St. Louis is inviting students who are majoring in journalism or related fields to apply for scholarships. Eligible students should be residents of the St. Louis metro area (city of St. Louis; Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, St. Charles, St. Louis and Warren counties in Missouri; Bond, Clinton, Jersey, Madison, Monroe and St. Clair counties in Illinois).

Scholarship recipients are chosen on the basis of aptitude and interest in pursing a career in some aspect of communication. Academic achievement and financial need are also important factors. Scholarships will be awarded in the summer of 2016. Last year, 20 students received scholarships ranging in value from $1,000 to $5,000.
