Robin Clark Experience


This award honors the memory of Robin Weaver Clark, a wonderful journalist who attended the school from 1973-77 and who was killed in a car accident aged 40 in 1995. Clark was in Los Angeles covering the O.J. Simpson trial for The Philadelphia Inquirer. Each year, an undergraduate journalism student in the School may use the award to learn as Robin did—by doing.  The key criterion for selection is the experience a student is planning. The experience could be in the US or international, it could tell the story of a group of people or allow the student to attend a unique cultural event. Whatever it is, it should be a rich and rewarding journalistic experience.
