John Chancellor Award for Excellence in Journalism is an annual award of $25,000, increased to $50,000 in 2016, selected by a panel of journalists, for quality reporting.

Established in 1995, the award was formerly administered by the University of Pennsylvania, and is administered by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. Ira Lipman provided a gift to Columbia University to support the award. He became a lifelong friend of John Chancellor after they met in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957.[1]
