The group awarded him two Sigma Delta Chi awards for pieces on college debt and a profile of Paul Bremer.

The Society of Professional Journalists has recognized Boston Globe Magazine staff writer Neil Swidey with two separate Sigma Delta Chi awards for pieces he wrote for the magazine last year. Swidey received a Public Service in Magazine Journalism (regional/local circulation) award for “Hopes, Dreams, Debt” (May 22, 2016), his probing investigation into the true cost of the college loan crisis and the students who are suffering most. Swidey also won a Sigma Delta Chi award for Magazine Writing (regional/local circulation) for “The Reckoning” (March 13, 2016), his illuminating search for the roots of ISIS through a profile of Paul Bremer, former American viceroy in Iraq. Swidey has won four SPJ awards in past years. This is the first time he has received two in a single year.
