The Lew Klein Alumni in the Media and Excellence in the Media Awards were established through the generosity of H.F. (Gerry) and Marguerite Lenfest and Walter and Leonore Annenberg through the Annenberg Foundation to celebrate outstanding members of the media. Proceeds from the annual event directly benefit the Lew Klein Scholarship Fund, which provides stipends to help defray tuition costs, encouraging students to pursue study abroad and internship opportunities. Last year, 26 students were able to study abroad, conduct independent research and participate in professional internships as a result of our sponsors’ support.
