THE IGNACY JAN PADEREWSKI SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Ignacy Jan Paderewski Scholarship Fund was instituted in 2004 by General Edward L. Rowny (Ret). This fund is dedicated to Paderewski’s philosophy that freedom and democracy are enhanced through education and the arts.
Paderewski scholarships provide a unique educational opportunity for exceptional Polish students, allowing them to come to Washington, D.C. to attend summer programs at The Fund for American Studies (TFAS). Each scholarship awards approximately $10,000 for tuition, housing, airfare and a stipend for living expenses.
Since its inception, the Paderewski Scholarship Fund has granted scholarships to nine outstanding Polish students. Past recipient biographies can be found here.
The Fund for American Studies is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to preparing college students for honorable leadership by teaching them the ideas of freedom and a free-market economy.
