What this scholarship means to me? I am incredibly grateful and honored to receive the Donald Lipshutz Scholarship. This scholarship will help me work towards my academic and professional goals with less of a financial burden and motivates me to work even harder to honor the support I’ve received from the donor and the Economics Department. I hope to pay it forward by giving back to the UCLA community in the future.
