Katrina Webster, Graduate Assistant


I am currently a student in the Department of Anthropology pursuing my Masters in Anthropology and Environmental Policy. I hope to broaden my understanding of the ways in which human livelihoods, cultures, and health are linked to the natural world. It’s my goal to explore ways to implement nature-based solutions and garner support for policies that achieve better public health outcomes.

As a first-generation college student, I have relied heavily on scholarships to fund my education and support my research projects. For that reason, I am incredibly passionate about helping students secure funding to pursue their academic and career goals.

I look forward to meeting with you and exploring upcoming scholarship opportunities!
