Fall 2013 Scholarship Recipients

The Museum is proud to announce that Karen Liu and Max Zhou have received the Museum Finance Academy’s merit scholarships for the Fall 2013 semester.

Karen Liu is a 17-year-old senior at Stuyvesant High School. Her interest in finance began several years ago when she became inspired by her father, who is a businessman who owns his own company. She plans to apply to the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania where she hopes to earn a B.S. in Economics with a concentration in Finance. Upon graduation, she aspires to a career in either corporate finance or the stock market. In her free time, Karen enjoys reading political articles, playing basketball, reading fantasy novels, playing golf and swimming.

Max Zhou is a 17-year-old senior at Hunter College High School. His work experiences over the last two years include interning for an accountant, being a salesperson at a phone and technology shop and working as a human resources associate in a marketing firm. When Max is not working, he spends his time writing for his school newspaper and being a “Big Sib” at Hunter, helping younger students adjust to the transition from middle school to high school. He is also a program coordinator for the Chinatown Literacy Project (CLP), a weekend adult ESL program that offers Chinese-speaking English language learners individual instruction and a chance to practice conversation with high school volunteers. He looks forward to further exploring business and discovering which areas he is truly passionate about when he goes to college.
