Molly Wilson

Political Science, University of British Columbia, 2021-2022 Corbett Recipient


My name is Molly Wilson, and I am wrapping up my time at the University of British Columbia with a major in political science and a minor in economics. I primarily grew up in Mount Vernon, Washington, but spent a period living on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia as well. Following the completion of my undergraduate degree, I hope to pursue a legal education with a focus on disciplines with international implications.

Being a dual citizen and spending time living and going to school in B.C. has given me an appreciation and attuned perspective to the social ties that unite B.C. and Washington. I am excited to explore an academic lens of the relationship that I have casually observed throughout my life and family dynamics. Throughout my studies of political science I have researched and written on the relationship of the United States and Canada as a whole, but I am thrilled for the opportunity to delve into the nuances of the connections, and disconnections, between the state and province that have both become home to me over the years.

The Corbett British Columbia-Washington International Exchange Program Fund provides an opportunity for undergraduate students at the University of Washington to spend two semesters at the University of British Columbia or University of Victoria; and for students from the University of British Columbia and University of Victoria to spend three quarters at the University of Washington.
