Ten Yalies receive Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans

Yale students or alumni comprise 10 of the 30 recipients of 2017 Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans, a graduate school fellowship for immigrants and children of immigrants in the United States.

Selected from 1,775 applicants, the recipients were chosen for their potential to make significant contributions to U.S. society, culture, or their academic fields, and will receive up to $90,000 in funding for the graduate program of their choice. Hungarian immigrants Daisy M. Soros and Paul Soros (1926-2013) founded the program in 1997.
