Application Tips

  • Please save your responses on a Microsoft Word document for your reference. Drafts will not be saved. Please submit the full application when all responses are filled.

  • Your responses should be a maximum of 300 words (for each essay response).

  • Incomplete and late applications will not be accepted.

  • If English is not your first language or you have not graduated from an English-taught program, please describe your English proficiency. Ideally, applicants will have a minimum of IELTS 7/TOEFL 100/Cambridge 180/CEFR C1 (screenshots of test scores are accepted). However, if you have never taken a standardized English test, the quality of your responses can serve as testimony towards your English ability and the Executive Committee may ask for further proof of your English proficiency. This requirement will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

  • YGS is fully funded for all accepted delegates (the Symposium organizers cover your airfare, accommodation, and meals). It is a scam if you receive any emails or communications asking for payment following your application.
