BU Program on Crisis Response & Reporting Announces Fellowship Recipients

April 17, 2014

The Boston University College of Communication (COM), School of Public Health (SPH) and the Center for Global Health & Development announced the 2 student recipients of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting fellowships. The two recipients will travel to Washington, D.C. this summer to work at the Pulitzer Center’s headquarters for 2-4 weeks. They will also travel internationally with a Pulitzer Center journalist to research and write a narrative feature article or create a multimedia production on a global health issue. The two students are Selin Thomas (COM ’14) & Sascha Garrey (SPH ’14).

“Selin Thomas is the total package, said Elizabeth Mehren, COM journalism professor.  “She’s strong, determined, a dedicated reporter and a lovely, fluid writer. p.s., she speaks fluent Turkish.”

“Sascha has more energy and enthusiasm than the ever-ready battery bunny. We are thrilled to give her this opportunity to combine her passion for public health and journalism,” said Anne Donohue, associate professor of journalism at COM.

The BU Program on Crisis Response and Reporting is founded on the principle of “One BU,” and as such, we continue to offer exciting international opportunities for SPH and COM students, in addition to developing different pathways for cross-collaboration at BU, with our partners in the US, and those around the world.
