Peoria, Illinois

Bio: Hello, my name is Grant Dailey! I was born and raised in Peoria, Illinois and received my B.A. in Political Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Now, at the University of Washington, I am a concurrent master’s student with the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance, and the Jackson School of International Studies. My major interests involve international relations and the interplay between public and private entities, particularly as they relate to the United States and East Asia. Key research topics include Technology Policy, Space Policy, and Public/Non-profit Finance. Outside of the classroom, I am interested in skiing (which I had never done before moving here), traveling, all things geeky/nerdy, trying new foods, learning Chinese, and finding novel ways to embarrass myself!

Why did you choose Evans?:
The Evans School became an obvious choice for me for a multitude of reasons. It has an excellent policy program and Seattle has a thriving tech industry. Ultimately, what really drove my decision to move across the country were the interactions I had with the students during prospective student days. I was immediately impressed by their passion and the sense of community they had developed with one another. I knew that I would have no trouble calling Seattle home. If you have questions regarding Evans or the University of Washington (or if you are simply looking for the best place to eat/drink/relax in the city), feel free to contact me!
