Yale Young Global Scholars Program

In 2018, the Yale Young Global Scholars Program (YYGS) will offer seven unique interdisciplinary sessions over the course of the summer. Bringing together extraordinary students from around the world, each session is designed to hone students’ abilities to understand and think critically about contemporary global issues. Students will have the opportunity to learn from distinguished Yale faculty members, participate in seminars designed and led by current Yale students, and engage with practitioners who are renowned leaders in their field — all while experiencing the world-class facilities and resources that Yale University has to offer.

Admission to the program is very selective. We offer need-based financial aid and encourage students from all countries to apply.

The deadline for applications is: Feb 6, 2018

OVERVIEW OF THE IB PROGRAMME

The IB programme allows students to explore their personal and academic interests via the International Baccalaureate model. Depending on their post-secondary aspirations and learning goals, students have the option of completing individual IB courses or completing the full IB Diploma. Both program options are valuable and should be chosen based on individual student needs.  Please explore our “About”, “For Parents” and “IB Curriculum Summaries” Pages for a more detailed explanation of student options.
