Alumni Community Service Fellowship Program

The Class of 1959 was the first Yale Class to permanently endow a Yale Alumni Community Service Fellowship (formerly AYA Community Service Summer Fellowship). Since that time the Class Council has voted on an annual basis to fund three more fellowships. Two classmates have individually sponsored fellowships for the past several years, making a total of six currently funded by the Class of 1959.

1959 Alumni Service Fellows have been hosted by classmates when assigned to work in their communities. Fellows also attend Class Council meetings and annual dinners and report on their experiences in person and with a written report.

The Yale Alumni Community Service Fellowship program has grown substantially since its inception. 1959 is proud to have been an early and continuing supporter of an activity that enables Yale students to do so much for others while engaging in a very valuable learning experience.
