GALA Summer Fellowship

The GALA Summer Fellowship provides a limited number of fellowships to pay for living expenses to allow students to work in unpaid internships for non-profit organizations working on political, economic, social or cultural issues that affect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer people. This award is made possible through the generosity of an anonymous donor affiliated with GALA, the Yale LGBT Alumni Association.
