Any new F&ES scholarship gifts received by June 30, 2016 will count toward Yale President Peter Salovey's “AccessYale” scholarship initiative and Reunion credit.
“Increasing scholarship support is obviously the right thing to do for our students, but it’s also the right thing to do for our School since it helps us to attract the very best students from around the country and around the world,” said Dean Crane.
“This initiative represents an enormous step in the right direction towards keeping Yale F&ES in the forefront of of training to meet current and future environmental challenges, and we simply could not have done it without the generosity of our friends and alumni.”
In an email message sent to F&ES alumni and friends earlier this month, Kohlberg and McHenry expressed their gratitude to all of those who contributed to the campaign. They also shared a video message from current F&ES students
that was first shown at the Leadership Council meeting in April.
“Our appreciation, though heartfelt, cannot adequately represent the gratitude of the students whom you have helped,” Kohlberg and McHenry wrote.
In addition to adding more scholarship support, F&ES is also actively engaged in new fundraising initiatives including a research campus at Yale-Myers Forest; a food/agriculture program to address a critical gap in the curriculum; recruitment and outreach efforts to boost the diversity of viewpoints at F&ES; and online education innovations.
