Yale joins alliance of universities supporting higher-ed access for rural and small-town students

Yale has joined a newly formed consortium of 16 colleges and universities working together to help students from small-town and rural America pursue opportunities in higher education.

The program, officially known as the Small-Town And Rural Students College Network, seeks to identify, recruit and support promising students from rural communities and small towns. This summer, Yale will use funding from the STARS network to build the inaugural STARS Summer Scholars program, which will offer five rural high school students the full financial support to participate in the Yale Young Global Scholars program.
