Call for stories on diversity
Hi everyone! My name is Joseph Rosales and I'm a senior staff writer for the Brown Daily Herald. For the past two semesters, I have mainly focused on writing stories involving diversity on campus. Last semester, I wrote on Latinos at Brown and the WPC program, among other topics. I am really interested in getting as many stories about the rich diversity we have on campus out there to the general public. If you have any suggestions or ideas for stories or people I should talk to, please don't hesitate to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (323-202-3676). Thank you very much, and have a good rest of the day.

About the Fellowship
The Solsbery Fellowship was established in 1996 in memory of Paul and Charles Solsbery, two boys whose lives were tragically cut short by violence. Founders of the Fund—Wendy Rowden (76), John Carton (76) and Lee Solsbery (76), the boys father—wanted to ensure that the childrens legacy was not one of senseless loss but of help to others. To that end, they created the Solsbery Endowment to promote research into the prevention of behavioral misadventures, including accidents, suicide, homicide, and other conditions limiting longevity in young people. The Fund has been made possible through the generous support of the original donors as well as numerous other Brown alumni.
