Cho Awarded Soros Fellowship for New Americans

Eunice Cho ’09 has won The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans. Established to provide educational opportunities to naturalized citizens, children of naturalized citizens, and resident aliens, the fellowship supports up to two years of graduate study in the United States. One of 30 fellows selected from a pool of 809, Cho was born in Urbana, Illinois, to Korean parents who are naturalized U.S. citizens. After graduating magna cum laude and with distinction from Yale University in 2000, Cho worked extensively in the immigrant rights’ movement for six years including co-organizing the U.S. migrant rights’ delegation to the 2001 United Nations World Conference Against Racism in South Africa and serving as education director of the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights. She has continued this focus at Stanford Law School, working on cases for the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic and the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project. Cho describes herself as “floored by the generosity and commitment of the fellowship.”
