Katherine Clifton


Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, Katherine graduated from Princeton University in 2015 where she focused on the social and political importance of literature and theatre. During a gap year before college, she taught English to Roma students in Serbia. After graduating, funded by Princeton’s Dale Fellowship, she returned to Serbia to explore hostilities between the Roma and Serbs and support refugee aid efforts. She then pursued Masters degrees at the University of Oxford in Refugee and Forced Migration and Public Policy as a Rhodes Scholar. In October 2018, she returned to Princeton University to coordinate the Religion and Resettlement Project, a three-year national program funded by the Luce Foundation that aims to better understand and respond to the role that religion plays in the lives of refugees as they resettle and integrate into the United States.
