About the Award

The Shorenstein Center annually awards the David Nyhan Prize for Political Journalism in honor of the late David Nyhan.

For 30 years Nyhan was a columnist and reporter at the Boston Globe. A graduate of Harvard College and a Shorenstein fellow in the spring of 2001, Nyhan was a regular participant in Shorenstein Center activities before, during, and after his fellowship. Nyhan died unexpectedly in early 2005. In his eulogy, Senator Edward Kennedy said of him, “Dave was a man of amazing talent, but most of all he was a man of the people who never forgot his roots. . . . In so many ways, but especially in the daily example of his own extraordinary life, Dave was the conscience of his community.”

The prize is made possible by the generosity of many donors.
