Christina Welsch, B.A. 2010, has received the Adolph G. Rosengarten Jr. fellowship at Princeton University, where she is pursuing a doctorate.

As a participant in the SIRE Program at Emory, she worked as a research assistant to Professor Tonio Andrade, which deepened her interest in historical scholarship.  Listen to her discuss her love of history and plans for a career as an historian.
