Lindsay Graef MPP ’19, Ryan Weinberg MPP ’19, Estefania Zavala MPP ’18, and Taylor Wyatt MPP ’18 are all recipients of a fellowship award from UCLA Luskin thanks to Calvin “Cal” Gross and his wife, Marilyn Gross. The couple, who are longtime supporters of the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, stopped by campus to meet the students and engage in conversation about their futures during a luncheon on April 13, 2018. The Calvin and Marilyn Gross Fellowship recognizes policy students for their commitment and involvement in public service, and the luncheon gave students an opportunity to talk about the research they have undertaken in the MPP program. Cal Gross also talked about his own life and connection to the School, mentioning that he was a childhood friend of former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, who teaches at UCLA each winter quarter as a visiting professor of public policy.
