Nominations open for third annual Y-Work Awards

Education Information

Dean of Yale College Marvin Chun recently announced the third year of the Y-Work Awards for Outstanding Undergraduate Student Employees. The award, which is accepting nominations now through March 6, recognizes undergraduates whose dedication to their on-campus jobs has a positive impact on the Yale community.

All Yale faculty and staff who supervise undergraduate student workers are encouraged to nominate student employees at the Y-Work webpage. All current undergraduates who have worked a term-time job are eligible.

In his announcement, Chun wrote that through on-campus employment, many Yale students “acquire and apply new skills, receive valuable professional mentoring, and improve their readiness for careers after graduation.”

The Y-Work Award seeks to honor those students whose impact through their campus job has been particularly noteworthy. A committee comprised of representatives from the Offices of Career Strategy, Financial Aid, Public Affairs and Communications, Student Financial Services, and Undergraduate Admissions will select student winners to be honored later this spring. The 10 winners of last year’s Y-Work Awards represented a wide range of Yale departments, laboratories, museums, and resource centers.
