Kosciuszko Foundation Ball is a celebration of a mission fulfilled and the benefactors who made it possible. The Foundation awards more than $1 million in fellowships and grants to graduate students, scholars, scientists and artists, and nearly 200 people benefit from the Foundation’s financial assistance on an annual basis.
This year, we have the honor of recognizing Martha Stewart, a visionary and entrepreneurial mogul, who happens to be of entirely Polish heritage (born as Martha Kostyra). Our Ball Chairman is Professor Waldemar Priebe, and our honoree will be renowned biochemist and researcher, Professor Piotr Chomczynski.
