Attention high schoolers, check out Yale's new summer enrichment programme
Students from over 125 countries have the opportunity to participate in one of five interdisciplinary 2-week sessions at the Ivy League college
Yale University recently announced that it is inviting applications for Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) 2020, an academic summer enrichment program for outstanding high school students from around the world. Each summer, students from over 125 countries participate in one of five interdisciplinary, 2-week sessions at Yale’s historic campus.
The YYGS 2020 session is offering sessions in humanities, social sciences, STEM, and a new cross-disciplinary track that incorporates all the above. The YYGS 2020 program is divided
into three sessions starting from June 21 to July 31. Yale also provides over $3.4 Million USD in financial aid equally to both domestic and international students, offered as discounts covering up to 100% of tuition costs.
With no grades or course credit, YYGS encourages students to approach all aspects of the program creatively with the understanding that they set their own limits. Students receive an electronic certificate of completion at the end of the session. The diverse and inclusive community at YYGS enhances learning by inviting students to analyse issues from multiple perspectives. Living and learning alongside peers from around the world allows students to broaden their own world views by learning about countries and cultures they have never encountered before.
For early applications, students can apply by November 12, 2019, and the regular date for applications is January 15, 2020. Students can apply at the following link: https://globalscholars.yale.edu/how-to-apply
