Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) is one of the most globally diverse, two-week academic summer programs in the world.
Serving over 2,000 students from 150+ countries and all 50 U.S. states, YYGS distributes over $3 Million USD in need-based financial aid to both domestic and international students.
YYGS Residential offers a rare opportunity for likeminded students from around the world to meet at Yale’s historic campus.

YYGS Online is a collaborative, engaging, and enriching experience for students from around the world. YYGS staff are dedicated to a curriculum that remains intensive and collaborative, while continuing to foster connections from across the globe.
