Alumni Spotlight

Katrina Ponti, a historian and 2015 graduate of Millersville University, says that learning she was a recipient of a Fulbright grant was surreal. She plans to use her Fulbright grant to support research with the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Colombia, in Canada for her dissertation project titled, “Agents of Exchange: American Public Diplomats in Foreign Affairs: 1783-1818.

You can read her story here.
