Annual Fund

The School of Forestry & Environmental Studies has offered me so many educational and extra-curricular opportunities to pursue my passions and motivate positive environmental change.

Gifts to the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies Annual Fund are directed to the School's most valuable asset—the students.  F&ES alumni and friends provide essential funds for financial aid, helping to offset the financial burden of professional study, and enriching learning opportunities at the School.
In contrast to many endowed scholarships that can be awarded only to students from a particular region or environmental focus, the unrestricted Annual Fund provides aid based solely on financial need.  As such, it plays a vital role in maintaining the School’s responsiveness to changing circumstances from year to year.
