Katherine Warren ’13 has been named a Truman Scholar for the state of Washington. The award, which provides up to $30,000 for graduate school, is given annually to students from approximately 50 U.S. colleges and universities.

An anthropology concentrator, Warren is a founding director of a Boston young women’s mentoring program and of the Akili Initiative, an online student think tank for global health. Her interests in women’s rights and health policy have led her to work on gender and disability in Bangladesh, mental health among American Indians, and research on violence against women for the United Nations. In her free time, she loves hiking and violin music.
