Ananya Agustin Malhotra ’20 Awarded Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship

April 24, 2024

Ananya Agustin Malhotra ’20 is among two recent Princeton graduates named recipients of the 2024 Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans, a merit-based graduate school program for immigrants and children of immigrants.

Soros fellows receive funding to support their graduate studies at institutions across the country and are “recognized for their achievements and their potential to make meaningful contributions to the United States across fields of study,” according to the fellowship. This year, 30 fellows were selected from 2,323 applicants.

Malhotra, the daughter of immigrants from India and the Philippines, majored in the School of Public and International Affairs. She earned certificates in European cultural studies and French language and culture. As a Rhodes Scholar, Malhotra earned her master’s in modern European history at Oxford.

She was an active member of the undergraduate humanities community at Princeton. As a Program in Humanistic Studies mentor in the Humanities Council, she helped to advise her peers about course selection and international experiences, and participated in informal peer discussions about literature, philosophy, history, and art. She was also a member of the Behrman Undergraduate Society of Fellows, a group of juniors and seniors who are committed to the study of humanistic inquiry.

Malhotra served as president of the Sexual Harassment/Assault Advising, Resources, and Education (SHARE) Peer Program. Her international experience included serving as a legal research intern with the European Roma Rights Centre in Budapest through the University’s International Internship Program.

The grant will support her pursuit of a J.D. degree at Yale Law School.
