Milken Scholars Go Back to School
Milken Scholars Go Back to School

This fall, Milken Scholars have returned to schools across the country, from Southern California and the East Bay to Cambridge and Manhattan. Once the semester starts, our newest Scholars know that their fellow Scholars can be an important resource throughout the school year and beyond.

Change can sometimes be a challenge, but 1994 Milken Scholar, Tulani Thomas, is demonstrating that it can also be an opportunity, as she continues to set an example for positive change personally, professionally and in the wider world.


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.
