Summer Media Fellows 2013

February 26, 2013

South Royalton, VT -- Vermont Law School and its Environmental Law Center is pleased to announce the following recipients of Summer Media Fellowships for 2013:

  • Tim Wheeler, a journalist with the Baltimore Sun since 1985 and past president of the Society of Environmental Journalists, has covered science, medicine, and the environment, most recently investigating hydraulic fracturing.
  • Jeremy Jacobs, a legal reporter at Greenwire with a 2,800 followers on Twitter, has covered air standards, EPA's Superfund and Brownfields programs, and a broad range of public health issues ranging from nuclear power to toxic substances.
  • Lisa Palmer, recipient of a Knight Fellowship, has written for The New York Times, Slate Magazine, and Scientific American. She is currently writing on the far-reaching effects of law and policy issues behind climate change and energy.

Each Summer Media Fellow will attend a two-week Summer Session course and deliver a "Hot Topics" lecture. Each fellow was selected based on work history and samples, commitment to covering environmental law, and their potential for increasing understanding of environmental law and policy issues nationwide.

Former Summer Media Fellows include Richard Harris, National Public Radio; Beth Daley, Boston Globe; Mark Schapiro, Center for Investigative Reporting; Seth Borenstein, Associated Press; and Kate Galbraith, Texas Tribune.

The VLS Summer Media Fellowships have been made possible since 2002 by a generous grant from the Johnson Family Foundation.
