Morgan Grosch is grateful to the generous Longhorn alumna who made her UT experience possible. As the youngest of six children (and the third Longhorn), she says, “There was a point where my parents were putting four kids through college at the same time. I’m so thankful to have received the Elizabeth Sauer Endowed Presidential Scholarship, which allowed me to pursue my interests and passions.”
After graduating, Morgan began her career at Perella Weinberg Partners, a global financial services firm, and has been accepted at Harvard Law School to continue her education in 2024. She is working toward a career tackling income and wealth inequality through public policy.
At UT, Morgan double majored in Plan II and finance as part of the Canfield Business Honors Program and embraced college life, joining the Delta Gamma women’s fraternity and the Honors Business Association.
While training for the Texas 4000 summer bicycle trek from Austin to Alaska to raise money for the fight against cancer, her life took an unexpected turn. Her mother was diagnosed with cancer, and she turned to the group for community and support.
“At UT I found people that I can really, truly rely on.”
“It was just a very big awakening freshman year,” she says. “I thought, ‘Wow, I’m on my own in the real world’ while also having these family issues. At UT, I found people that I can really, truly rely on, and they have gotten me through that experience.”
Those shared kindnesses inspired her to serve as an analyst for the Texas Undergraduate Investment Team, teaching students about financial modeling and the smart use of money. She hopes her experiences will lead to a future of advocating for and protecting consumers and individuals.
