Yale Young Global Scholars Program


The Yale Young Global Scholars Program is an academic enrichment and leadership training program for talented high school students from around the world, who live and study on the Yale campus during the summer. Students will attend lectures by Yale faculty, as well as smaller, more intimate seminars taught by Yale undergraduate and graduate students. Over the course of the two-week program, students will also work in Capstone project groups to identify problems in a specific topic, conduct rigorous background research, and propose impactful solutions to their peers and instructors. Students admitted into the highly-selective program get a taste of the Yale experience through the use of Yale libraries, classrooms, dining halls, and dorms. The comprehensive online application for all six sessions is available now and accessible through the program website. The application deadline is January 31. Need-based scholarships are available.
