Patricia Gurevitch established the Michael Gurevitch Journalism Scholarship in memory of her husband in January 2009 to support doctoral students in the Philip Merrill College of Journalism.
An internationally renowned mass communication scholar, Professor Emeritus Michael Gurevitch taught at the University of Maryland's College of Journalism from 1983 until 2008. Much of his work was grounded in case studies and original research relating to how journalists grasped the practical problems of keeping the public informed. Dean Reese Cleghorn often said that hiring Dr. Gurevitch gave the college unprecedented intellectual credibility. In memory of Dr. Gurevitch, his wife Patricia Gurevitch established, through the University of Maryland College Park Foundation, Inc., an endowed fund to support doctoral students in the Philip Merrill College of Journalism.
