AU Students Win Pulitzer Center Fellowships

WASHINGTON, DC, 20 April 2015 — American University communication Ph.D. student Kara Andrade and graduating journalism major Julia Boccagno have been named 2015 recipients of the Pulitzer Center Campus Consortium International Reporting Student Fellowships.

The CLALS is a contributing partner to this initiative and its Luce Foundation-funded work on religion and Latin American affairs is supported by Andrade’s research.

We all have worked very hard for this day. We are proud of this joint venture with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, and we’re excited about the students’ work that will come out of this venture.
