Madison Stewart is a rising senior at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania where she majors in political science with a minor in public administration. Madison has spent much of her academic career researching the effects of ethnic groups and ethnic political parties on intrastate conflict. She is currently in the process of writing a paper that seeks to find trends between ethnic conflict types and successful transitional justice mechanisms. Madison is also interested in foreign policy, national security, human rights, and humanitarianism. She is interning in D.C. this summer as part of an education program through The Fund for American Studies, and hopes that this experience will help shape her career and academic goals for the future. Madison is also a decorated member of the Kutztown University field hockey team and the Lehigh Valley Young Republicans.
