The Rowny Paderewski Scholarship Fund was instituted in 2004 by General Edward L. Rowny, who passed away at 100 years old in December 2017.
Rowny 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 $11,426 for tuition, housing, airfare and a stipend for living expenses. Since its inception, the Rowny Paderewski Scholarship Fund has granted scholarships to 13 outstanding Polish students. Past recipient biographies can be found here.
