Career Strategy Fellowships Study Abroad Summer Session

Information for Alumni

You are here

More than 1,500 Light Fellows and alumni now reside across the United States and around the globe. Given the mobile, cross-border nature of work and life these days, we're sure you are on the move.

Did your Light Fellowship experience have an impact on your life and career? One long-term goal for the fellowship is to build a useful database of alumni who are willing to share their experiences and advice with new or former fellows. One day soon the fellowship might be in a position to fly alumni in to New Haven to give talks at fellowship dinners, etc. So the lesson is: Stay in Touch!

Question: How do I stay connected?
