Young Global Scholar Awards at Yale University 2021/2022

The Yale Young Global Scholar Awards is an unmatched academic and leadership program at Yale University built on liberal arts principles, renowned for its diverse and inclusive community, and dedicated to expanding educational access.


Yale Young Worldwide Scholars develops the next generation of leaders by fostering intellectual curiosity, deepening understanding, and inspiring creative action across all borders through the creation of a global community and multidisciplinary activities.

Yale Young Global Scholars stress a collaborative, open, and exploratory learning environment. Our curriculum gives students the opportunity to learn in a variety of university settings, including major lectures, small seminars, and even casual learning in dining halls and around campus. YYGS encourages students to approach all areas of the program creatively, with the idea that they determine their own bounds, as there are no grades or course credit. At the conclusion of the session, students will get an electronic certificate of completion.

YYGS’s varied, and inclusive community enriches learning by encouraging students to consider issues from several perspective. Students can widen their world views by learning about places and cultures they have never met before by living and learning alongside peers from all around the world.

With no grades or course credit, YYGS encourages students to approach all aspects of the program creatively 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 improves learning by inviting students to analyze 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.

Exploring Yale includes participants living on campus, exploring the surrounding area, and taking advantage of the Yale community’s resources.
