Yale Book Award

The Yale Club of Dallas is honored to sponsor the Yale Book Award for local high school juniors every year.

The  Yale Book Award helps the Yale Club of Dallas to:

  • Bring Yale’s name to awards assemblies each year where the most outstanding students, their parents and key teachers, administrators and guidance counselors are present.

  • Encourage students who had not previously considered themselves likely candidates for Yale or similar universities.

  • Offer an opportunity for conversation between alumni and Book Award recipients.

The Yale Club of Dallas delivers with the book two important memorabilia:

  • A Yale bookplate inscribed with the student’s name, date of award, Yale Club sponsorship, and the personal name of an award donor.

  • A brochure portraying Yale’s excellence and student life.

We also submit the name of each award winner to the Yale admissions office for additional consideration.


Become a Yale Book Award Sponsor

Some local alumni choose to sponsor the Yale Book Award for their high school alma mater or other local high school. The cost to sponsor a book award is $60. This covers the cost of the book, calligraphy and shipping.
