The UNC Center for Media Law and Policy has awarded $1,000 summer grants to two students in the center’s dual-degree program.
The grants went to Natasha Duarte and Kevin Delaney to support their summer internships. Kevin will be at the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press in Arlington, Va. Natasha will be at the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) in Washington, D.C., working in the Internet Public Interest Opportunities Program.
The media law center grant program, which is in its second year, supports journalism and law students doing unpaid and low-paying summer internships in the field of media law and policy. In conjunction with a similar program at the law school, the center ensures that each student has at least $5,000 in summer pay.
Students in the dual-degree program earn both a J.D. and a master’s in journalism.
Congratulations to Natasha and Kevin!
