The Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award is an Americanmarker award that honors excellence in broadcast journalism. The awards, administered since 1968 by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalismmarker in New York Citymarker, are considered a broadcast equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize, another program administered by Columbia University.

The duPont-Columbia Award was established in 1942 by Jessie Ball duPont in memory of her husband Alfred I. du Pont. It is the most well-respected journalism-only award for Radio and TV, and starting in 2009, under new director Abi Wright, began accepting Web-based submissions. The duPont, along with the George Foster Peabody Awards, rank among the most prestigious awards programs in all electronic media.

The duPont-Columbia jury select the winners from programs that air in the United States between July 1 and June 30 of each year. Award winners receive batons in gold and silver designed by the American architect Louis I. Kahn. The gold baton, when awarded, is given exclusively in honor of truly outstanding broadcast journalism.

In 2003, the first-ever foreign-language program was awarded a duPont-Columbia Award. CNN en Español and reporter Jorge Gestoso won a Silver Baton for investigative reporting on Argentina's desaparecidos.
