In spring 2020, the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration (RITM) will bestow the Yale Bassett Award for Community Engagement on a select number of high school juniors in the United States (class of 2021) who demonstrate a record of creative leadership and public service, academic distinction, interdisciplinary problem solving, and experience addressing societal issues including, but not limited to, race and racism.

We encourage school counselors, high school teachers and administrators, Yale alumni, and others to nominate outstanding high school juniors who might wish to apply via the form below.

Nominated students will automatically receive an email notifying them of the award application and your nomination. The student application deadline is January 24, 2020.
