Yale Students Enlisted to Help Guide Low-Income Students Through the College Application Process

Two Yale Matriculate Advising Fellows

Yale University is expanding its partnership with Matriculate, a nonprofit organization that uses students at high-ranking universities to provide online college advising services to high school students from low-income families. Yale students who serve as Matriculate Advising Fellows will provide information, guidance, and support to assist high school students across the country as they navigate the college application process.

Recently Matriculate held a two-day training seminar on campus for 40 new Advising Fellows. Some of the Matriculate Advising Fellows will be eligible for scholarship awards from the Yale office of admissions.

Madeline Kerner is the CEO and co-founder of Matriculate and a 2007 Yale alumna. She states that “we are excited to deepen our partnership with Yale as we work to empower high-achieving, low-income high school students to make the leap to our best colleges. Yale Advising Fellows have an opportunity to connect with and support some our nation’s most talented, low-income students from coast to coast, particularly students in smaller, more rural communities with few college access resources.”
