The U.S. Grant Foundation

  About US Grant Since 1953, The US Grant Foundation has been providing exceptional academic enrichment programs during the summer for middle school students from the New Haven Public Schools. The program gives Yale Undergraduates the chance to develop a course to teach to middle school students and provides students with an exceptional academic program that expands their academic horizons beyond the classroom.

The Teachers Every year, nine talented undergraduates are hired to develop their own six-week long course and teach it to students from all over New Haven. Teachers typically share a house off-campus, and work collaboratively with each other to create a passionate and enthusiastic school community.

 Compensation Teachers are paid $3,300 over the course of the summer.


 The Program The Summer 2011 program runs from June 19 to August 4.

 Information Session There will be an information session on February 1 at 7 pm in the Dwight Hall SJN Room. There will be as short presentation about the program and a chance to talk with former US Grant teachers about their experiences as a teacher.

 How to Get Involved Applications are available at under the Teachers heading. Applications are due on February 5th and can be submitted to  This email address is hidden from email harvesters via JavaScript .
