2016 Yale Young Global Scholars

An official Yale University program, participants in the Yale Young Global Scholars Program for Outstanding High School Students can expect an amazing summer experience studying in beautiful campus lecture halls and classrooms, living in Yale’s historic residential colleges, eating in award-winning dining halls, meeting a talented community of fellow students, engaging with world-renowned professors, and interacting with extraordinary visiting practitioners.

The Yale Young Global Scholars Program is a very selective leadership-development program for high school students from around the world. The program is designed to bring together students with the talent, drive, energy, and ideas to make meaningful impacts as young leaders, even before they begin university studies.

Campus Living


Living on the Yale campus for 2 weeks during the summer, students in the program:
  • Hone their abilities to think critically and flexibly
  • Engage productively with a diverse group of peers
  • Explore new and exciting ideas
  • Meet distinguished scholars and practitioners
  • Develop key communications skills
While building a strong network of like-minded young people, participants assemble a leadership toolkit that they take back with them to their home communities at the conclusion of the program.
