The Caroline A. Yale Memorial Fund

The Caroline A. Yale Memorial Fund was established in 1937 by the Clarke School Alumni Association in memory of Miss Caroline A. Yale for her distinguished contributions to Clarke. Miss Yale was a pioneer who supported oral education for students, firmly believing that they should be given every opportunity to develop the skills they need to succeed.

Any former student, who has attended one of the five campuses of Clarke for at least one year, regardless of whether the applicant graduated or mainstreamed early, may apply for a scholarship from the Yale Fund.

The application deadline is May 1. For more information or to apply online click here. If you have any questions, please send an email to
