Carolyn Ours Headshot

Carolyn is a rising fourth-year student studying Economics at the University of Virginia. She is from Springfield, Virginia and has always lived in the Metro area. Her academic interests lie in immigration and education policy, and how reform in these areas can better prepare the labor force for today's economy.  

Prior to working for MAP, Carolyn worked as a research assistant for the Politics Experimental Lab at the University of Virginia on projects investigating how various political stimuli affect cognition and decision-making. She previously volunteered for her local party organization, contributing to both presidential and gubernatorial campaign efforts.

Next year, Carolyn will begin her Masters in Public Policy at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. She is excited to join MAP for the summer and work to support its mission of promoting young, bipartisan leadership.
