"We are dedicated to preserving Marie Colvin's legacy and nurturing in the next generation of journalists the kind of tenacity and commitment to ground truth that Marie embodied," said Stony Brook School of Journalism Dean Howard Schneider. "This award helps make that possible."The fellowship will give one outstanding graduating senior or master's student the opportunity to work at one of the Journal's international bureaus. A faculty selection committee chose finalists for the award, and Journal editors selected the winner. Hanaa' Tameez, the inaugural recipient of the award, was a journalism and Spanish double major at Stony Brook University, and the former editor of the campus newspaper The Statesman . She said she hopes to pursue a career in investigative reporting or documentary production. "I don't think I could have asked for a better result after graduation," she said about the award. Hanaa' will work both independently and as part of a team alongside beat reporters and editors, covering news events, producing stories for print and online in real time, and helping to produce online graphics and, on occasion, video elements. There will be opportunities to undertake broader enterprise reporting projects. In 2013, Rupert Murdoch, Chairman and CEO of News Corp, made a $50,000 gift to Stony Brook University's School of Journalism to further the development of the Marie Colvin Center for International Reporting through the News Corporation Foundation. Mr. Murdoch's donation helped to expand the Marie Colvin Center's overseas reporting program, Journalism Without Walls, which among other places has sent student journalists to Russia, Cuba, China, Kenya and Turkey.
