Katie Harris, PhD student in the Division of Plant Science and Technology, was selected for the 2022 Katherine S. McCarter Graduate Student Policy Award (GSPA) through the Ecological Society of America (ESA)

This award provides graduate students with the opportunity to participate in a virtual Congressional Visits Day.

GSPA recipients will also explore policy career options.
