Yale Young Global Scholars
Yale Young Global Scholars empowers the next generation of leaders by building a global community and designing interdisciplinary programs that foster intellectual curiosity, deepen understanding and inspire creative action across all borders.
Yale University directly administers the program through the Yale Office of International Affairs. The members of the program leadership team are all employees of the university and most of our instructional support staff are Yale affiliates, including current Yale undergraduates, recent Yale College graduates, and Yale graduate students. Those few who are not Yale degree holders have backgrounds at schools like Harvard University, the University of Oxford, and Brown University.
The program is highly selective and gives students an unforgettable summer experience. To give students room to flourish in a new learning environment and to explore new academic interests, YYGS does not offer course credit, nor do students receive any quantitative evaluation during or after the program.
YYGS will waive the application fee if it would constitute a significant financial burden for the student’s family. The application fee waiver form must be submitted with the scholarship portion of your application.
Applicants will be notified electronically of admissions decisions by late March or early April.
YYGS reviews all applications holistically. Our staff understands that students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and with different educational and extracurricular opportunities. As a result, the essays and letters of recommendation are the most important parts of the application.
The YYGS application requires:
Applicants to the program must have some high school to complete after they attend the program, and we accept applications from current high school sophomores (US grade 10) or juniors (US Grade 11) only, or international equivalents. YYGS does not accept applications from current junior high school students (US grade 8), current high school freshmen (US grade 9), or from students who are under 15 years old. The program also does not accept applications from students who are current high school seniors (US grade 12), high school graduates, or college/university undergraduate students.
