Our Commitment

Yale University values the perspectives and lived experiences of students from small towns and rural areas. Yale’s undergraduate admissions process considers applicants within their specific context, background, high school, neighborhood, and geographic setting. On campus, Yale students benefit from a supportive residential college and advising system, a generous need-based financial aid program that meets 100% of need with scholarship grants, and a thriving rural student organization. As a founding member of the Small Town and Rural Student (STARS) Network, Yale is committed to expanding its support of rural and small-town students on their path to and through college.
