2021 Ann Devroy Memorial Forum | WisCommunity


University of Wisconsin Eau Claire Events

Honoring one of journalism's 'toughest and fairest' The Ann Devroy Memorial Fund supports an event and student fellowship dedicated to the memory of Ann Devroy, a UW-Eau Claire journalism graduate and respected journalist often described as one of the best reporters ever to cover the White House. The fund was started by Devroy's family and colleagues at The Washington Post after she died of cancer in 1997 at the age of 49. Their generosity supports the Devroy Fellowship, which provides a scholarship and a three-week stint at The Washington Post, as well as eligibility to apply for a paid summer internship at a Wisconsin daily newspaper. It also supports the Devroy Forum, which annually brings journalists of national prominence to UW-Eau Claire. Devroy Forum speakers often spend time on campus and in classrooms before delivering an address that is free and open to the public. With the incredible opportunities given to journalism students through the Ann Devroy Memorial Fund, our faculty is proud to house the Ann Devroy Memorial Forum and Fellowship.
