Famous Yale StudentsOriginally named the Collegiate School, the institute was renamed Yale College in 1718 to honor Elihu Yale. Yale was the governor of the British East India Company and was a wealthy supporter of the school. Yale University is committed to educating tomorrow’s leaders; nearly 40% of Yale students receive financial assistance in the form of scholarships and grants that do not need to be paid back.  Today, roughly 50% of Yale graduates are women, 30% are minorities, and 8% are international students. Applying may be easy, but getting accepted is not. Over 25,000 high school graduates apply to Yale each year, but less than 2,000 are accepted. Some of the world’s most famous personalities and politicians have attended or graduated from Yale. The Yale Graduate list below represents only a small percentage.
