Paul and Daisy Soros, Hungarian immigrants and American philanthropists, established their fellowship program for New Americans in December 1997 with a charitable trust of fifty million dollars. Their reasons for doing so were several.

Finally, they wished to call attention of all Americans to the extensive and diverse contributions of New Americans to the quality of life in this country.
