The University of Washington is very pleased to have Warren Ilchman, Director of the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans on the University of Washington campus on Tuesday, May 1, 2007. The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships For New Americans Fellowships are for graduate study in any academic or professional field. The Fellowship provides $20,000 maintenance and half tuition (up to a maximum of $16,000 per annum) wherever the Fellow attends.
Ms Ngoc-Phuong Luu, a 2007 Soros Fellow, will be available to talk to students about the benefits of the scholarship and the application process. Phuong is a first year UW Medical student who is specializing in primary care. For Phuong, the Soros Fellowship has been very important -- "Through the financial support of the Soros Scholarship, I have gained freedom of choice that is enabling me to consider public service careers with regard to my interests and my abilities to serve most effectively."
