Yale Young Global Scholars

Dear Friends of NNSP,

My name is Melissa Dwelley, and I work for a global summer program at Yale University. I’m reaching out to the NNSP community to spread news of our program for talented high school students. Thank you for sharing this opportunity with your network!

Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) is a two-week summer program that facilitates discussions on cutting-edge topics in academia, while students also experience university life at Yale’s historic campus. Participants choose a session based on their academic interest, and they meet like-minded peers from around the world.

YYGS offers sessions in the humanities, social sciences, STEM fields, and a new cross-disciplinary track that incorporates all of the above.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Students meet peers from over 125 countries around the world, and join classroom discussions where students offer global perspectives.
  • We provide over $3.4 million USD in need-based financial aid and scholarships, offered as discounts covering up to 100% of tuition costs.
  • Applicants are encouraged to apply by our early action deadline and receive a reduced application fee. If the fee poses a financial burden, students can submit a fee waiver to reduce their application fee to $0 USD.
Early Action Deadline: Nov 12, 2019 at 11:59PM ET
Regular Decision Deadline: Jan 15, 2020 at 11:59PM ET
