Who we Are


On January 16, 2014, Yale made a series of 9 commitments to the White House outlining its dedication to making the University even more accessible to our nation’s lower-income students.

A Leg Even (A.L.E.) was founded by JaVaughn Flowers, a graduate of  the Class of 2017, along with other students who wanted to do their part in helping the University accomplish that incredible goal.

Our objective is simple: to work alongside our University in combating the unique challenges inherent in the college experiences of Pell Grant recipients, or students requiring the highest amount of financial need as designated by the U.S. Federal Government.
