This past summer, two BU students received fellowships with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. Lusha Chen (COM) traveled to Myanmar to report on bride trafficking to China, and Kerstin Egenhofer (SPH) traveled to Malawi to report on the success of cash transfers in improving the well being of the poorest households. And eight BU students representing COM, SPH, and CAS traveled to Kenya to collaborate with Kenyan students to tell stories of foreign development assistance as part of the PamojaTogether Student-Powered Foreign Aid News Network. Come hear about their reporting adventures, the intersection of public health and journalism, and learn how you can apply for a 2014 Pulitzer Fellowship. This event is part of International Education Week, a university-wide celebration of BU's global engagement. To learn more about our partnership with the Pulitzer Center, please visit the link below.
