The Peggy Browning Fund has awarded summer fellowships to UW Law students Michael Annerino, Jenifer Bizzotto and Andrew Fabianczyk. All three recently completed their second year of law school.
The purpose of the fellowship program is to inspire students to pursue careers in public interest labor law. As part of the award, law students receive stipends to support their summer work in labor-related organizations around the nation.
An Illinois native who grew up in a union household, Annerino is spending his summer working at United Steelworkers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is a returning fellow, whose 2016 award supported his summer work experience at the Chicago News Guild.
Originally from Michigan, Bizzotto is also a two-time Peggy Browning Fellowship recipient. She spent her 2016 summer fellowship at the Fair Work Center in Seattle, Washington, where she has returned to work this summer.
Fabianczyk is a first-time Peggy Browning fellow, who is working at the union-side law firm Mehri & Skalet in Washington, D.C., this summer. He grew up in the Chicago area.
To receive the award, students must have demonstrated success in their law studies and a commitment to advancing workers’ rights. Nearly 400 applicants competed for this summer’s fellowships.
