Y-Apply, Inc. has been selected to the beneficiary organization of the My Luu Memorial Fund.
A talented and compassionate leader across many industries and long-term supporter of Y-Apply, My Luu succumbed to a long-term illness in the fall of 2015. In the wake of her passing, My's family and friends sought ways to honor her memory and to sustain her zeal for the life-changing possibilities of higher education by creating the My Luu Memorial Fund. Y-Apply was selected to be the beneficiary organization of all proceeds raised by the fund due to My's belief that her access to higher education at a top-tier university dramatically improved her life. My was a 1996 graduate of Yale University and long-time friend of fellow Yalie, Y-Apply's Founder & CEO, Aaron Shipp.
