Paul and Daisy Soros, Hungarian immigrants and American philanthropists, established their fellowship program for New Americans in 1997. Their goal was to assist these individuals at critical points in their education, as well as to call the attention of all Americans to the extensive and diverse contributions of New Americans to the quality of life in the U.S. See Huffington Post blog article “Big Thanks to Paul and Daisy Soros for Reminding Me About What Makes America Great!“
