2018 Spring YEA Fellowship Application
The Yale EA fellowship is a competitive semester-long program for students to deeply engage with ideas and strategies for effectively improving the world. Fellows meet for a dinner discussion every Thursday, many of which will be with distinguished guests and scholars who will share their ideas and their work.
Topics range from poverty alleviation and global health interventions to moral philosophy and existential risks. Currently, confirmed guests include Professor Shelly Kagan, Professor Alexander Coppock, Professor Julian Jara-Ettinger, Dr. Mark Sheskin, and Dr. Erez Yoeli. More guests will be announced soon.
To be considered for the Fellowship, apply below by 5pm on February 5, 2018. (This deadline was extended from the original Feb 4 deadline to accommodate for a surge in interest following our coverage in the YDN:
