From Yale’s website:
Yale’s 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 (class of 2020) in the United States in Spring 2019.
Yale Bassett Award winners will demonstrate a record of creative leadership and public service, academic distinction, interdisciplinary problem solving, and experience addressing societal issues that might include, but need not be limited to, race and racism. Students with non-traditional leadership experiences or significant work experiences are also encouraged to apply.
Winners will receive a book selected by the faculty of the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration and, they will be invited to a gathering on Yale’s campus, hosted by the Center, in the Fall of 2019.
Applications are being accepted now through Feb. 2019. See the website for more details.
