School of Forestry & Environmental Studies Receives $200,000 for Student Scholarships
The Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies has received a $200,000 grant for student scholarships from the Evan Frankel Foundation.
The grant will provide $10,000 per year for tuition expenses to 10 students enrolled in any of the school’s four, two-year master’s degree programs of environmental management, environmental science, forestry, and forestry science. In addition, the School has committed to obtaining matching funds, ensuring each Frankel Scholar at least $20,000 in support.
“Financial aid is one of the highest priorities of the School, particularly as we strive to increase the availability of a Yale education to students from the developing world,” said Dean James Gustave Speth. “The Evan Frankel Scholarship Fund will allow us to move immediately to educate a new, more diverse generation of environmental professionals.”
Established in 1900, the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies is the oldest U.S. school devoted to professional training in the environment and natural resources. The school’s 300 students are from 50 U.S. states and 43 countries.
