Valley Press Club Scholarships

2016 marks the 52nd year the Valley Press Club will award scholarships to high school students planning a career in journalism. Students may obtain applications from their school guidance counselors, or click here to download an application information guide, and the Application and Checklist. The $1000 scholarships will be presented in June. Applications for Valley Press Club Scholarships must be submitted by April 1, each year, to the address at the bottom of this page, or electronically to info@valleypressclub.com

Mr. Albert M. Jaffe, senior vice president for talent negotiation and production recruitment at ESPN, and recipient of the Valley Press Club’s very first scholarship in 1964, attends the Annual Scholarship event every year and generously presents a scholarship in gratitude of his successful career. The Valley Press Club is deeply grateful to WWLP-22News and The Republican Newspapers for underwriting two of the annual Press Club scholarships. If you need more information, email us: info@valleypressclub.com
