Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans. Born in Illinois to Nigerian immigrants, Orchingwa received a Truman Scholarship in 2013, earned his degree in philosophy and sociology from Colby, and went on to earn an M.Phil. from the University of Cambridge (England). The Soros Fellowship “honors the contributions of immigrants to the United States and provides up to $90,000 in financial support” over two years for graduate work. Orchingwa will start law school this fall at Yale University.
