Scholarship Description
The 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 YYGS program provides scholarships to students with demonstrated financial need. We will award scholarship money based on need demonstrated in your completed application. Last year, approximately one third of program participants received full or partial scholarships based on financial need. Unfortunately, YYGS financial assistance cannot cover travel expenses, and we cannot guarantee financial aid to all those who apply for it.

The 2012 name change from Ivy Scholars to Young Global Scholars reflects the program’s continuing mission to educate increasing numbers of international students and to expose students from the United States and abroad to global issues, international affairs, American government in comparative perspective, and policy leadership.

Yale University

The program is designed for students, usually aged 15-17 at the time of application, who still have some high school or secondary school to complete. You are eligible to apply if you will finish your final year of high school or secondary school in 2019 or 2020. Typically this means that students are between the ages of 15 and 17, although some exceptions exist.

YYGS reviews all applications holistically. Our staff understands that students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and with different educational and extracurricular opportunities. As a result, the essays and letters of recommendation are the most important parts of the application.

Eligible groups
Citizens of ALL countries

In the summers of 2015 and 2016, participants represented all 50 states of the USA and over 100 countries. Countries represented included China, Brazil, Turkey, India, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and Mexico, as well as Myanmar, Tunisia, Kenya, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Poland, Afghanistan, and many more.
