About the Lytle Fellowship
The Myrtle C. Lytle Student Aid Fund supports graduate fellowships for students in the School of Social Welfare. Annual award amounts vary.
The Myrtle C. Lytle fund was initially established by a bequest from the estate of Myrtle Lytle, a Berkeley Social Welfare alumna who received her MSW in 1956. Since then, various donors have made additional contributions to the fund. Myrtle Lytle served as director of the Alameda Family Services Agency in the late 1950s, and worked as a family case worker and supervising social worker for various agencies until 1962.
