Yale SOM Student Receives Soros Fellowship for New Americans

Dennis Tseng ’14 has received a prestigious Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans to support his studies at Yale SOM. The highly competitive fellowships are awarded purely on merit, with an emphasis on creativity, originality, initiative, and sustained accomplishment. Tseng was one of 30 fellows in 2013.

The Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans supports the graduate education of young people who are either immigrants to the U.S. or the children of naturalized citizen parents.

In an entry on the Yale SOM Community Blog posted when the fellowship was first announced, Tseng wrote, “Being the kid of two spectacular immigrant parents has been a defining part of my life, and I hope that the opportunities that this fellowship provides allow me to make good on the promise my parents saw when their families moved to the States many years ago.”
