Pascale International Fellows at the William J. Clinton Foundation

The Pascale International Fellowship at the William J. Clinton Foundation provides funding for one student each from Yale University and McGill University – the alma maters of James Pascale (DC ‘76) – to serve at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) for one summer.  The Pascale Fellows work on projects related to the CGI Annual Meeting held each September when CGI members convene to work on their Commitments to Action toward education, poverty, global health, and climate change or, as President Clinton puts it, to turn “good intentions into real actions and results.” For more information on the history of the fellowship, and a list of past fellows, please visit www.pascalefellows.org.

Program Dates: June-September 2015


Current Yale College juniors and seniors are welcome to apply, but – as the program includes work requirements in September – graduating seniors may receive primary consideration.

All participants must be able to commit to working at CGI in August and September in preparation for the CGI Annual Meeting.  Pascale Fellows are expected to participate in an exchange program whereby the McGill Fellow will host the Yale Fellow in a visit to Montreal and the Yale Fellow will host the McGill Fellow in a visit to New Haven.  In addition, the Pascale Fellows may have the opportunity to spend a few days in Little Rock, visiting the Clinton Library and the Clinton School of Public Service.  The costs of the visits will be covered by Mr. Pascale.
