What does the scholarship mean to me?: I cannot be grateful enough to be selected as the recipient of the Professor Harry Simons Endowed Undergraduate Scholarship for the Study of Accounting. This scholarship reduces the financial burden for both my parents and me, a burden made heavier by the expensive international student tuition fee. But I am encouraged again to know that there are always opportunities and rewards to those who seek and endeavor. I thank Professor Harry Simons Scholarship Donors for their generosity. I hope to give back to those in need in the future, like I have received this scholarship today.
