Syracuse University alumna Robin Toner ’76 was an acclaimed political journalist who served as the first female political correspondent for The New York Times. After her death in 2008, Toner’s family, friends and former classmates launched a fundraising campaign to support The Robin Toner Program in Political Reporting and to honor her life and work.
Please consider joining us. Fundraising priorities include:
- The Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting, awarded annually for the best national or local political reporting
- The Toner Lecture on American Politics and Political Journalism, which explores the craft and challenges of political reporting
- The Toner Stipend for Innovation in Coverage of Electoral Politics, which will be awarded in advance of every presidential election cycle and every important, mid-term election cycle to encourage new techniques in campaign reporting in any medium
