Full Scholarship at Yale Young Global Scholars Program

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. The deadline is on February 6.

With no grades or course credit, YYGS encourages students to approach all aspects of the program creatively and with the understanding that they set their own limits. Students receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the session. Living in Yale’s residential college gives students a taste of life at Yale University.
