The Yale Young Global Scholars Program (YYGS) is a pre-collegiate academic and leadership-development program in the United States for exceptionally talented high school students. YYGS is administered and hosted by Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, and our two-week residential sessions in June, July, and August draw students together from all over the world.

YYGS has worked with EducationUSA advisers in the past to connect high school students from many regions outside of the United States with our program. YYGS gives students an authentic experience of academic and residential life at an American university. International participants represented approximately 40% of total participants in the program in 2013, and we hope to host even more international students in 2014.

In 2014, YYGS is expanding to include three sessions: (1) Science, Policy, and Innovation (SPI), June 16 - June 29; (2) Politics, Law and Economics (PLE), July 7 - July 20; and (3) Studies in Grand Strategy (GS), July 26 - August 8. Each session is interdisciplinary, and features lectures and discussions with distinguished Yale faculty, elective seminars on a wide variety of topics, small-group projects tailored to students' interests, and complementary activities such as simulations, career discussions, and tours of Yale.
Summer 2014 applications are now available online and are due February 20. Students currently in U.S. grades 10 and 11 (or international equivalents; usually ages 16-17) are eligible to apply. Admission is competitive, and we look for students with strong academic preparation, intellectual ability, and leadership potential, as well students who will be active and engaged in the YYGS community.

YYGS is committed to hosting exceptionally talented high school students of all backgrounds. At the time of application, students may apply for need-based financial assistance.

Please share notice of this unique program with any of your students who would enjoy the opportunity. A video of past students' reflections on the program can be viewed on YouTube, and full details about the program are available on our website. The official press release from Yale News (published in several languages here) is also available to share, as are electronic flyers and booklets about the program.

You're invited to email us at global.scholars@yale.edu with any questions. We are happy to provide you with any information about the program, the admissions process, our student profile, and more.
