Book Award

This award is presented annually to a high school junior who has shown intellectual promise, significant involvement in extracurricular activities, and community service.

  • This year’s book is Benjamin Franklin, by Edmund S. Morgan.
  • Currently, the Yale Book Award is offered at twenty six local high schools. Periodically, at the recommendation of a Yale parent or Alum (and after the recipient school approves), additional schools are added to our list.
  • The Club welcomes contributions from members and non-members. You may endow a perpetual award to a high school of your choice for a contribution of $500; however, any amount is welcome.
