Fall Visits Combine Campus Tours, Community Service, and Scholars Camaraderie
This fall, the Milken Scholars Program traveled across the country for campus tours, group dinners and community service. These visits are a chance for program directors and staff to meet with Scholars in groups and individually to offer support, advice or an empathetic ear.

They also provide Scholars an opportunity to maintain contact and support each other throughout the year. In addition, Scholars came together in both New York and Berkeley to spend the afternoon helping others, and this December, we are joining Project Angel Food at their Hollywood kitchen in conjunction with the Los Angeles annual Holiday Dinner, a special evening where Scholars home can gather, reconnect, and discuss the year ahead.

Each recipient has a record of excellence in academics, leadership and service, and has triumphed over obstacles. Their myriad accomplishments range from creating an organization to combat genocide in Darfur to conducting an intensive multi-year molecular biology study on breast cancer.

The Milken Scholars Program Begins its Twentieth Year
In 1989, 16 students from A. Philip Randolph High School in Harlem, New York were recognized and rewarded with a scholarship that was hardly typical. Mike and Lori Milken decided that a scholarship program should do more than disburse funds. It should bring together students who have managed to perform at an academically high level despite being faced with substantial obstacles, and provide them with resources for success—both tangible and intangible—that would otherwise be out of their reach. They founded the Milken Scholars Program, an initiative of the Milken Family Foundation, to do just that.
