11 MARCH 2014 / Yale University’s ELI Magazine on SNF Landmark Grant to Yale School of Art

Yale University’s ELI Magazine reports on the SNF’s latest grant to the Yale School of Art, marking a major milestone towards the SNF’s long support to the University. The SNF’s latest grant creates a permanent, unrestricted endowment at Yale that will support core priorities of the Yale School of Art, while naming in perpetuity the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Dean. The endowment will help to advance the school’s leadership and presence in the global fine arts community.

A second grant will also supplement three existing endowments for the school, created by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation in 2010, to establish an artist’s residency, scholarships for international students, and a dean’s resource fund.

In 2007, the Foundation helped establish the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Center for Hellenic Studies at Yale University. It has also supported the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization, Yale College scholarships, the Peabody Museum of Natural History, and the Child Study Center.
