The Yawkey Community Service Funded Internship was created in 2016 and funds Yale College undergraduates in nonprofit positions in the New England Area with a $5,000 stipend. These fellowships are supported by the Yawkey Foundation, which is committed to continuing the legacy of Tom and Jean Yawkey by making significant and positive impacts on the quality of life for children, families, and the underserved in the areas which the Yawkeys called home: New England and Georgetown County, South Carolina.
For information on the types organizations that have been funded in past years visit the Yawkey Foundation website. This can prove helpful for those who are seeking ideas on organizations to intern. The proposed fellowship does not need to be for one of the foundation’s grant recipients.
