Making History: The Campaign for Penn

Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild and Sir Evelyn de Rothschild

Penn parent Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild and her husband Sir Evelyn de Rothschild know that when it comes to transforming lives and societies across the world, there is nothing more powerful than education. When the couple decided to make a gift to Penn to mark the extraordinary experiences her sons Benjamin Stein, C’08, and Jake Stein, C’10, had as undergraduates, they were drawn to Penn’s ambitious global scholarship initiative, the Penn World Scholars Program.

Established in 2006, the World Scholars Program is opening the doors to Penn to international students of remarkable talent and receive financial support throughout their time here, consistent with the most generous awards available to undergraduates. Coming from countries ranging from Latvia, to Swaziland, to Vietnam, these standout students are contributing to and benefiting from Penn’s rich living and learning community — while also gaining perspective and skills they can use in their home countries to create positive impact.

For this Penn family, the Rothschild World Scholarship, which supports students from Commonwealth countries, is a powerful investment in the future — and an enduring affirmation of the incredible things that can happen when Penn connects with the world, one student at a time.
