The White House Correspondents’ Association supports a student of The University of California at Berkeley through a $5,000 gift toward a post-graduate degree for a student in the Government and Public Affairs reporting track.
Jennifer Chaussee is a graduate student at UC Berkeley whose career as a multi-media reporter began in the San Francisco Bay area. A summer internship following graduation from UC Davis sparked a new interest in political reporting. A recent grant to travel to South Korea helped bring a global perspective to Jennifer’s stories about international as well as national health policies and food systems. Her articles have been published in The California Health Report, The Orange County Register and The San Diego Union-Tribune. She has written about hunger, health access and 3D printing in the medical industry for the new online site Oaklandnorth.net.
