DP Investigative Journalism Award Established By Steve Stecklow ‘76, Philip Lentz, and John Daniszewski ‘79

We are excited to announce that through their generosity, DP alumni Steve Stecklow ‘76 and John Daniszewski ‘79, along with friend and colleague Philip Lentz, have established the Stecklow/Lentz/Daniszewski Prize for Investigative Journalism. This new student prize will be awarded annually to a DP journalist for their outstanding work in the area of investigative journalism in The Daily Pennsylvanian or its related publications. The winner of the prize will be selected by a committee of judges made up of DP alumni and will be awarded $1,000 at the DP awards ceremony, traditionally held in January.

The donors hope their new award will serve as inspiration for DP reporters, who are learning and exploring the craft of investigative journalism, an area of the DP’s editorial side where student interest has grown immensely in recent years.

We are grateful to Mr. Stecklow, Mr. Daniszewski and Mr. Lentz for their gift and appreciate their commitment to meeting the needs of our students and organization. Thank you!

Philanthropy will assure the DP’s success in big year ahead…

The students are back, another fall semester is underway, and almost 500 students have shown interest in joining the DP through recruitment already. We are gearing up for a big year and we cannot do it without you and your philanthropic support. Through your giving each year, you amplify the voices of our students and upgrade the educational experience and resources our organization is able to offer.

Make your Annual Gift Today

Your DP Advances gift provides the DP with the ability to maintain financial independence; which is key to our editorial effectiveness and incredibly important for those Penn students who seek to discover and tell the stories that must be told.

Your DP Advances annual gift is a powerful vote of confidence in a group of Penn students who are tasked with:

  • Reporting on an institutional behemoth
  • Shining light on important and controversial social issues
  • Asking the tough questions of our community and ourselves

Your generosity each year makes possible the experiences that shape lives and careers. The dollars you give go directly to our students through training, salary stipends, scholarships, internships, prizes, awards and more.
