Michael Lopez, one of our undergraduate fellows, has been awarded the U.S. State Department's Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship Program and Critical Need Language Award.

Michael will be using the Critical Need Language funding for intensive language study in Moscow, Russia.

Michael was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. He has always felt passionate about a career in public service, due to the necessity of self-sacrifice.
