FactCheck.org honored one of its University of Pennsylvania undergraduate research fellows with the inaugural Brooks Jackson Undergraduate Fellowship Award. The award, named for FactCheck.org’s co-founder, was presented to Corey Berman, a junior majoring in communication at the Annenberg School for Communication.
Annenberg Public Policy Center (APPC) director Kathleen Hall Jamieson announced the creation of the award at a luncheon last fall honoring APPC’s 25th anniversary and FactCheck.org’s 15th anniversary. The Brooks Jackson award is designed to honor an undergraduate research fellow who has done exemplary work in fact-checking and most embodies the talent, spirit, and integrity of Brooks Jackson.
FactCheck.org director Eugene Kiely described Berman as a dedicated and hard-working student who took pride in his work, whether he was responding to readers, fact-checking articles, or writing his own posts for FactCheck.org.
