Zeliang Cai : Schwarzman Scholars Program

Zeliang Cai (Economics, ’22), an international student from China, is passionate about finance, particularly welfare foundation and venture capital investment. As an undergraduate, he helped redesign an investment portfolio at a welfare foundation in China, for which he received the 2020 Project HOPE Outstanding Contribution Award. Zeliang also served as research team captain for Cal’s Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics and was the portfolio manager of a student start-up that supports college entrepreneurs and has more than $1 million assets and 70 members from universities around the world. Zeliang is looking forward to being a Schwarzman Scholar because the program offers the environment, classes, and resources that will enable him to build on his personal interests and address real-world issues. Even more, he is looking forward to networking with an international cohort of extraordinary individuals who will support each other’s future endeavors.
