YIRA is committed to ensuring its programs are accessible to students of all backgrounds. Generous financial aid funds are earmarked for each conference. Please refer to the individual conference websites, and their payment and registration pages, for information on how to qualify for this assistance.

To minimize barriers for participation in YIRA, all Yale students who receive financial aid from the university are eligible to receive comparable financial assistance to participate in YIRA programs. This aid can be utilized for a variety of costs, such as conference chairing or secretariat fees, if applicable, but does not cover optional pre-conference travel for our international programs. For more information on financial aid for YIRA members, please visit here.
