The Peggy Browning Fund has awarded a 10-week summer fellowship to Andrew Ingram, a second-year student at The University of Texas School of Law. Mr. Ingram will spend the fellowship working at the National Labor Relations Board, Division of Judges, in San Francisco, CA. The application process is highly competitive, and the award was based on his outstanding qualifications.

In 2012 The Peggy Browning Fund will support nearly 70 public interest labor law fellowships nationwide. With more than 500 applicants from 125 participating law schools, securing a Peggy Browning Fellowship is not an easy task. Peggy Browning Fellows are distinguished students who have not only excelled in law school but who have also demonstrated their commitment to workers’ rights through their previous educational, work, volunteer and personal experiences. Andrew Ingram is no exception.

The Peggy Browning Fund is a not for-profit organization established in memory of Margaret A. Browning, a prominent union-side attorney who was a Member of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from 1994 until 1997. Peggy Browning Fellowships provide law students with unique, diverse and challenging work experiences fighting for social and economic justice. These experiences encourage and inspire students to pursue careers in public interest labor law.
