Yale Alumni Association Public Service Award

About the Yale Alumni Association Public Service Award

STAY helps manage the process, and nominate candidates, for the YAA Public Service Award.

Awarded annually to three Yalies – a Yale College student, a graduate or professional school student, and an alum – these awards recognize individuals whose innovative, outstanding, and sustained contributions in service to the greater good exemplify the leadership Yale strives to cultivate.


Alumni Nominees: You may nominate an individual alum of any Yale college or school. Nominations of teams or groups are not typically considered. Nominees should have performed (preferably still be performing) sustained service that is individual, innovative, impactful, and inspiring.

Student Nominees: Must be in good standing at Yale College or at one of Yale’s graduate or professional schools. Self-nominations are welcome!
