Katrina Webster, Graduate Assistant


I am currently a student in the Department of Anthropology pursuing my Masters in Anthropology and Environmental Policy. While my research has ties to environmental justice and protected areas, I’m hoping to further explore the impacts of neoliberal conservation on human and more-than-human populations. 

As a first-generation college student, I have relied 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!
