Allan Malamud Memorial Award
When Los Angeles Times Sportswriter and Hall of Fame Inductee Allan Malamud passed away in September 1996, many of his friends, led by Hall of Fame sportswriter Mitch Chortkoff, established the Allan Malamud Memorial Award.
The award is a scholarship presented periodically to a high school or university student planning a career in print or broadcast journalism. The SCJSHOF administrates scholarship fund.
A highly respected journalist for the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner for 25 years before joining the L.A. Times in 1989, Malamud’s daily “Notes On A Scorecard” column was a favorite of Southern California sports page readers.
Allan Malamud was born and raised in L.A., and was a graduate of Los Angeles High School and the University of Southern California.
