April 15, 2011, is the deadline for submitting entries to the 2011 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.
Typically the Press Club 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 the schools the winners plan to attend, or are attending, to defray any college-related expenses.
Print and photo entrants should send:
- • A one-page resume.
- • Three to five clippings mounted on letter-sized white paper; photos CD; and video on DVD-R.
- • A letter of recommendation from an instructor in journalism, communications or English.
Entries should be sent to:

Finalists will be interviewed in person by the Press Club’s Scholarship Committee. Winners will be honored at the Press Club’s 30th Annual Greater Bay Area Journalism Awards Dinner in June 2011.
