Washington D.C. 2015 Milken Scholars Recognition CeremonyMandarin Oriental, Washington D.C., July 11, 2015
The Milken Scholars, a joint initiative of the Milken Institute and the Milken Family Foundation, selected five exceptional high school seniors as 2015 D.C. Milken Scholars. The Scholars were chosen based on academic performance, community service, leadership and their ability to persevere in the face of adversity.
The new Scholars delivered inspirational remarks during the Milken Scholars Recognition Dinner held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in D.C. on Saturday, July 11, 2015. The Scholars were joined by Milken Scholars Founder Michael Milken, Program Director Gregory Milken and Program Director Dr. Jane Foley.
Each Scholar will receive a $10,000 scholarship, but what makes the program unique is the access to a lifetime of resources provided to scholarship recipients. The Washington, D.C. Scholars program is also the beneficiary of support from the Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies.
