By ED FRANKS ( , Pine Island Eagle

Pine Island resident Evan Berlanti was chosen to receive a research fellowship from the LeMieux Center for Public Policy at Palm Beach University.

Through The LeMieux Center Fellows Program, Berlanti, an upper-level undergraduate student, will pursue an independent study of current or emerging public policy issues concerning individual freedoms, values, rights, religious liberties and institutions in the United States.

Berlanti, a junior from Bokeelia, selected the rhetorical framework used by both sides of the debate into the legalization of medical marijuana in Florida as the research focus of his fellowship. Dr. Francisco Plaza, associate professor of political science, will support Berlanti in his research project.

Berlanti is majoring in history and is a student in the University's Frederick M. Supper Honors Program.

The fellows receive a stipend to cover the cost of an independent study course as well as expenses, such as travel, incurred during the course up to $2,500 as well as ongoing guidance for their research project from former U.S. Senator George LeMieux. The application process included submission of a research proposal, resume and a letter of support for the research from a faculty mentor. Selection of fellows is based on the application and an interview.
