The Yale Young Global Scholars Program (YYGS) will offer six unique interdisciplinary sessions on Yale’s campus in 2017. Each session is designed to bring together high school students with extraordinary talent and promise from around the world and hone their abilities to understand, think critically about, and strategize responses to certain contemporary global issues. Students will have the opportunity to learn from distinguished Yale faculty members, participate in seminars designed and led by current Yale students, and engage with renowned practitioners in lectures and career panels – all while experiencing the world-class facilities and resources that Yale University has to offer. After participating in the program, each student will join our global community of YYGS alumni, spanning more than 100 countries.
Admission to the program is very selective. We offer need-based scholarships and encourage students from any country and all financial backgrounds to apply. Current high school sophomores and juniors and international equivalents are eligible to apply. For more information, visit globalscholars.yale.edu.
