Many Yale departments welcome students interested in LGBTS and queer theory, with the greatest concentrations at present in American Studies, History, and African American Studies. LGBTS and other Yale programs and initiatives provide support to graduate students from across the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the professional schools who are interested in LGBT Studies. LGBTS provides FLAGS research grants of up to $5,000 to support research by graduate and professional students. Yale does not offer graduate degrees in LGBTS, and students interested in studying LGBT issues at Yale should apply to one of its degree-granting departments. Questions about graduate programs and admissions procedures should be directed to departments rather than LGBTS.
