The Yale University Women’s Organization (YUWO) was founded in 1965 “to provide an opportunity for women of the Yale community to meet and pursue common intellectual and social interests.” For more information about the history of the organization, click here.
The organization sponsors various activity groups that focus on specific interests of the members. YUWO also sponsors three popular lecture series: the monthly Lunch and Learn programs, and the Fall and Spring Study Groups. YUWO also sponsors several bus trips during the year to destinations of interest throughout the region.
Our calendar also includes three special events — the annual Wine and Cheese Reception, the holiday Gala, and the annual luncheon in May. Click here for more about our activities and events.
For over three decades, YUWO has sponsored Scholarships for Continuing Education, a program designed to provide financial assistance to women of the Yale community; applicants must be women associated with the Yale community through their own affiliation or that of their immediate family members (past or present).
