If you recall, Penn took this big step earlier this year for aspiring journalists, and now a famous alum of ours is making a sizable donation to further support this endeavor.
More about this alum and details about what it will support after the jump!
Penn alum Maury Povich (C'62) is making a gift of $1 million to set up an endowment, The Povich Fund for Journalism Programs at the Kelly Writers House.
The annual interest derived from the Povich Fund will perennially support seminars, workshops, presentations, talks, and symposia in journalistic nonfiction writing in all its forms at the Writers House--as well as visits to the House by both eminent and emergent writers in the broad field of journalism.
Great to see how Penn (and it's alumni) continues to support these creative programs!
