In 2020, Alaska Press Club is funding professional development opportunities with support from Atwood Foundation and Knight Foundation in partnership with Rasmuson Foundation. We’re partnering with news organizations, educational institutions and individuals to offer training tools and workshops that will provide reporters with the knowledge, skills and inspiration needed to do the work Alaskans depend on. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis from Jan. 31 to Dec. 31, 2020 or until funds are spent. Grant info..
