The 2021 YYGS Connect application is now closed.

In an effort to remain globally diverse and accessible for all students, Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) will host sessions online in June & July 2021. Given that it is not possible to offer a globally represented campus experience, YYGS staff have worked hard to make our virtual program, YYGS Connect, a collaborative, engaging, and enriching experience. We encourage you to view the recording of our YYGS Connect webinar and visit our YouTube channel to hear more about the program directly from Yale faculty lecturers, Yale graduate and undergraduate instructors, and YYGS Connect alumni.


Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) is an academic enrichment program for outstanding high school students from around the world. Each summer, students from over 130 countries (including all 50 U.S. states) participate in one interdisciplinary, two-week session at Yale’s historic campus. Immerse yourself in a global learning community at Yale University.
