Volunteer Opportunities

Exploring Science every Tuesday at 6PM
Exploring Science Every Tuesday is a weekly discussion with Yale scientists exploring and debating neuroscience, quantum physics, astronomy, robotics, and more on Zoom.
Yale Flipped Science Fair
Please join us for an info session, where you will learn about the Yale Flipped Science Fair and begin to distill your research message to more effectively communicate with a broad audience.
New Haven Public School English Language Learners
The New Haven Public School English Language Learners especially those who are newcomers to New Haven, are in real need of supplemental help to make progress. New Haven Public Schools has requested help from Yale in developing an after school tutoring program aimed at mitigating the effects remote learning has had on these students. Please join us in this collaborative effort! We are seeking Yale students who can make a weekly one to two-hour commitment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays between 4-6 PM or on Saturdays between 12-2 PM. Multilingual speakers are a plus, but not required.
Yale Education Tutoring Initiative (YETI)
The YETI Study Hall , a free academic resource, connects undergraduate tutors with New Haven youth through a tailored match-making process according to scheduling availability, academic subjects, and any other area of noted interests or need for expertise.
Yale Mentorship for Minority Students (STEM)
The Yale Mentorship for Minority Students in STEM (YMMSS) is a new program that wants to create mentorships for underrepresented groups in STEM at Yale. We want to partner students with similar STEM interests and which belong to the same minority group(s). Mentor pairings would be constructed so that first-years and sophomores are paired with juniors and seniors, and juniors and seniors with graduate students. Mentorship can take place in a 1-1 setting or in a group.
Polygence is where you can connect with driven students online. Guide their research projects. Help them showcase their work and passion through publications, conference presentations or creative pieces.

Programmatic Opportunities

Undergraduate and Post Baccalaureate Students

Science, Technology and Research Scholars (STARS)
The Science, Technology and Research Scholars (STARS) Program, administered by the Yale College Dean’s Office, is designed to support women, minority, economically underprivileged, and other historically underrepresented students in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics.
Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program (SURF)
Each summer the Yale SURF Program brings about 15 qualified undergraduates to Yale for eight weeks to explore what a Ph.D. could offer them.
BioMed Amgen Scholars Program
The Yale BioMed Amgen Scholars Program is a research-intensive summer training program in biomedical research for undergraduate students who plan to obtain a PhD or MD-PhD in the biomedical sciences. We particularly encourage students who are members of groups underrepresented in the sciences, who are the first in their families to college, who are from inner city or rural communities, or who have grown up with financial or other disadvantage to apply.
Post-baccalaureate Research Education Programs (PREP)
Are you a recent college graduate from a traditionally underrepresented background who is highly motivated to pursue a research career? See if the Yale BBS PREP or ESI PREP post-baccalaureate program is right for you.

Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows

DC Career Trek
The DC Career Trek is a career trek for graduate students and postdocs at Yale to learn about science policy and communication jobs in and around the federal government.
The SYNAPSES Seminars at Yale Neuroscience: Advanced Postdoc Extramural Series) seminar series is co-sponsored by the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience and the Department of Neuroscience to bring outstanding postdoctoral researchers from across the globe to Yale to share the most recent results in rapidly developing areas of neuroscience.
Kavli Postdoctoral Award for Academic Diversity
The Kavli Postdoctoral Award for Academic Diversity supported by the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience at the Yale School of Medicine, seeks to support exceptional scholars who bring a diversity of perspectives, identities, and backgrounds to academic research, including those from groups that are historically underrepresented in the sciences. This Award supports up to two years of mentored research in the neurosciences at Yale University, including salary, benefits, and a research allowance.
