Amy Krings received her Master’s in Social Work from Michigan and settled into her field. She bought a house, she got a dog, and she saved for her retirement fund. Her life was stable and on an upward trajectory, but there was still something missing.
“If it hadn’t been for the five years of financial support that Rackham provided I wouldn’t have been able to walk away and pursue this path. For me, it was the difference between having an opportunity to go to graduate school or not, and the ability to focus on my research without fear of debt or needing to take an additional job. Funding has been an enormous help in advancing my research and giving it a greater degree of breadth and depth it wouldn’t have had otherwise.”
