Grant completed his undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University (BYU), during which time he took a break from school and lived in Romania for two years where he learned the Romanian language and became interested in Romanian history. His capstone research paper at BYU focused on the communist takeover in Romania. He obtained his master's degree at the University of Edinburgh in the History of the Second World War in Europe. His thesis dealt with German stereotypes of the Romanian Army during the Second World War and has since been published. He currently is at Texas A&M working on his Ph.D. focusing on a social-military history of the Romanian Army and its motivations for fighting on the Eastern Front, including its participation in the Holocaust. He has just participated as a fellow in the Auschwitz Jewish Center programme.
