Rose's artistic research has recently been supported by the Matthew Hansen Endowment from the Wilderness Institute at the University of Montana and the Graduate Travel Award from the Mid America Print Council. Her work has been selected for publication in 25 Under 25: Up and Coming American Photographers Vol. 2, published by powerHouse Books and the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.
