TAYLOR CRAY, Graduate Assistant


Originally from Readfield, Maine, I am well-versed in the financial needs and limitations that stem from life in rural areas. I could not be more excited to be in a position that allows me to assist students with scholarships that will help them pursue their academic interests and passions, regardless of financial need.

I am currently a student in the School of Policy and International Affairs, pursuing my Masters in Global Policy with a concentration in Security and Foreign Policy. It is my hope that someday my own interests will also take me around the world to conduct research in a variety of different environments.

I am excited to meet you, and hopefully to help you find scholarships and opportunities that will assist you with your academic journey!
