From CCP to Oxford Scholar

After graduating from George Washington High School in the Northeast in 2010, Larry Liam Ching Liu breezed through Community College of Philadelphia and earned an associate’s degree with honors.

With a scholarship from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, Liu transferred to the University of Pennsylvania, where he made the dean’s list and earned a degree in sociology and economic policy in May.

Now, the 23-year-old, who juggled jobs as a research assistant at Penn and sold shoes in the Northeast, has been named the Cooke Foundation’s first Oxford Scholar. He will spend a year at Oxford University’s Lincoln College, working toward a master’s in comparative social policy.
