The Susan Rasky Scholarship Fund for Journalistic Excellence, established in 2014, is named in honor of Susan Rasky, a veteran national political reporter who taught at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism for two decades before her death from breast cancer in 2013. The Scholarship Fund includes the Susan Rasky Memorial Award for Journalistic Excellence in Political Reporting, a competitive award given annually to a second-year graduate student based on journalistic work. Recipients are determined through a competitive process overseen by the Dean of the Graduate School of Journalism in consultation with an esteemed group of alumni.
