Droopad, a business economics sophomore, was awarded a $2,500 scholarship her freshman year by the Collegiate License Plate program, which is funded by the purchase of UA custom license plates.

After applying for the scholarship, Droopad, who is from Phoenix, said she was called for an interview to meet with six or seven UA alumni. [Read article]
