Selection Criteria

  1. Up to five Yale Medals may be awarded at the AYA Assembly in the fall.
  2. These awards are based on the sole criterion of outstanding service to Yale.
  3. Recipients do not necessarily have to be Yale degree holders, but they must be available to accept the award in person. Anyone whose service merits exceptional recognition is eligible.
  4. Note that because the award is given primarily and typically for volunteer service to Yale, the committee rarely considers current or past members of the University administration, faculty or staff unless such individuals also have an outstanding record of volunteer service before or after their periods of employment.
