Scholar Statistics



"The Milken Scholars are obviously a very intelligent and accomplished group of people. More importantly, they are, each, thoughtful and inspiring individuals. I came to speak to the group; hoping to inspire them with my story. I left inspired by theirs."
Nelson Carbonell, Jr. - Chair, Board of Trustees, George Washington University


"It has been a pleasant and rewarding experience speaking at the Milken Scholars Summit. I enjoyed sharing my own stories and thoughts with those extraordinarily talented young people this program has brought together. I'm confident that this program is nurturing future leaders of our society who will make the world a better one."
Dominic Ng - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, East West Bank

The Milken Scholars Program thanks Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies for its generous support of our Washington D.C. Scholars.

Healthy Celebration: Congratulations to Angela Oh, MS ’11, who was recently accepted to the David Geffen UCLA School of Medicine. Angela will be graduating with an honors degree in neurobiology from Harvard prior to starting medical school this fall.

Helping Hands.  In January, Nathan Williams, MS ’14, deployed as part of a contingent of Team Rubicon volunteers to clean up flood and landslide damage in Aberdeen, Washington.  Afterward, Nathan was asked to share his thoughts about his experience working with some of the dedicated veterans who are using their expertise and experience as disaster relief first-responders around the world.

Healing Hands.  Catholic Relief Services program manager, Francisco Perez, MS ’02, recently returned to West Africa to continue the fight to staunch the Ebola outbreak. Last year, when the outbreak hit he was on the ground in Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia before being evacuated.  In October, he was featured in Catholic New York for his tireless and heroic work.
