2016 Grano Award Testimonial

"I cannot thank AAEA or the Grano Board enough for the opportunity to visit Washington D.C. this fall. Having never traveled to D.C. before, the trip presented many unique professional and personal opportunities. In many graduate programs, my own included, classes or subject content is rarely focused on policy or its implications in the real world. The wide array of high level meetings I was able to attend through this scholarship program allowed me to see both the big picture and finer nuances of agricultural policy and its application to the study of economics. Through this program I was able to network and expose myself to a multitude of policy applications including congressional work, lobbying, market analysis, trade, and marketing. I strongly recommend this program to all graduate students considering a career in policy work and hope the program continues long into the future. " - Candace  Wilson
