Grace Morris


Grace Morris ’24, from Montclair, New Jersey, is concentrating in the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs and pursuing a certificate in African American Studies. The 2023 Gilbert S. Omenn’61 and Martha A. Darling MPA ’70 Scholar, she is passionate about creating equity-focused policies to level the economic playing field for institutionally discriminated against groups. During summer 2022, Morris interned for the Office of Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ). While there, she worked to identify equity gaps in current Senate immigration and agricultural policies, advocated for the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act’s passage, and participated in legislative protests against the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade. These experiences, along with her legislative internship in summer 2021 with Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-3)’s Office, illustrated to her that incorporating intersectional frameworks into policy decisions are essential for effective cooperation and legislative action. She was also a 2021 Schaeffer Fellow in Government Service. On campus, Morris was the student manager for Princeton Women’s Rugby in their inaugural varsity season this fall. She also sings with the Princeton University Glee Club and the Princeton Tiger sessions and is a member of the Black Student Union.
