Yale Women in Economics

High School’s rising 12th grade minority girls apply for college scholarships, and teach professional and financial management skills. Our students deliver an Economics capstone project and learn economics with Yale University professor's in the goal of having young women of color enter the field of economics as well as use the knowledge to rethink the economy for their communities. We select 30 Scholars to participate in this opportunity as well as our Fall and Spring Workshops.
