About the Club
Mission: The Yale Club of France exists to help connect
Yalies in France with each other and to help raise Yale's profile in
Dinner with the Yale ClubIf you are a Yale faculty member, alumnus or student in France for research, please consider participating in “Dinner with the Yale Club,” a favorite event of club members. The speaker discusses a topic of their choosing over dinner with a small group of alumni (maximum 15). The idea is to recreate the stimulation of a Yale seminar in the City of Light (and veritas). Past speakers have addressed topics as diverse as the future of supercomputers (October 2012), the restitution of art looted during WW2 (May 2010), human rights (March 2012), and the U.S. healthcare system (April 2012). There are no honoraria but we offer the meal for the speaker and one guest. If you are interested, please contact the club President by email.
Other activitiesThe Club also supports efforts to help Yale, including interviews with prospective students, participating in local U.S. education fairs, and presenting the Yale Book Award to outstanding students in local high schools. People interested in interviewing should contact our ASC Director.
For September 2017 matriculation (class of 2021), we had 3 students admitted to Yale College. Applications from France were 57 (vs 51 last year), which is an admit rate of 5%, just slightly below Yale's overall admit rate. Many thanks to our interviewers who managed to interview nearly every candidate.
Help!None of these functions or interviews would be possible without the generous support of our members. We have a continued need for help with activities planning and undergraduate interviewing. The more help we have, the easier it is to schedule these events to better serve our members. The commitment is never very demanding for any individual, so please consider volunteering.
