1 min read

Kennedy School of Government (KSG) student Sareena Dalla was recently awarded a $2,000 Overseas Press Club (OPC) Foundation scholarship at the foundation’s annual scholarship luncheon in New York City. A panel of leading journalists selected Dalla (and 11 others) from a pool of applicants representing 65 colleges and universities.

Dalla won the Theo Wilson Scholarship, named for the legendary New York Daily News reporter, for her essay describing how journalists could best serve as a voice for those that lack one by understanding history through the eyes of the people affected.

The OPC Foundation is the nation’s largest and most visible scholarship program encouraging aspiring journalists to pursue careers as foreign correspondents.
