Yale to host 100 low-income high schoolers over summer through new partnership with nonprofit


Beginning this coming summer, the nonprofit Leadership Enterprise for a Diverse America will bring its annual Cohort of 100 rising high school seniors from under-resourced backgrounds to Yale’s campus for the final week of its college preparatory summer program.

The partnership follows a September commitment from Yale College administrators in response to the Supreme Court’s summer ruling to overturn affirmative action. One of the initiatives on the list was to host a “high-impact college preparatory summer program” for students from underrepresented backgrounds within two years. Now, Yale’s partnership with LEDA will seek to accomplish that goal.
