Eminent Scientists of Polish Origin and Ancestry

About the KF's Collegium of Eminent Scientists:

In order to bring deserved recognition to the achievements of Polish scientists, the Kosciuszko Foundation (KF) has established the "Kosciuszko Foundation Collegium of Eminent Scientists."

The goals of this initiative are:

(i) to honor eminent scientists of Polish origin and ancestry who have achieved recognition in the USA;

(ii) to recognize, highlight, and publicize their achievements and important contributions to the respective fields of science.  Significant achievements by Polish scientists will be provided to news media and made accessible through the internet;

(iii) to identify, record, and catalogue eminent Polish scientists and scientists of Polish descent residing in America.  This compendium will be of interest to future historians in Poland and elsewhere and to Polish organizations in the USA.
