A Stanford University Student, Devin Banerjee, has been awarded the 2010 Danile Pearl Memorial Journalism Internship, which will have him working in one of the Wall Street Journal's foreign bureaus this summer. According to the university news release he expects to graduate in 2010. He is the editor-in-chief of the Stanford Daily and is working towards a degree in management science and engineering, with a concentration in technology and policy.
