Support Low-Income Students

By making a gift to Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS), you are supporting low-income high school students to attend a program that encourages an open, exploratory, and collaborative approach to learning. 

While YYGS is financially self-sustaining and limited funds are available for students in need, generous outside donors provide additional and necessary support to low-income families. We truly appreciate any contribution, no matter how small, which helps supports our goal of providing financial assistance to students and families with financial burdens. Together, we can increase student access to education. 

The residential cost per student to participate in YYGS is approximately $7,700 when you bundle tuition, travel, and necessities such as a fan, a cell phone, a tablet, etc. YYGS does its best to accommodate student needs, however the need is constantly growing, and that’s why we need your help. You may make a general gift towards tuition or you may choose where your contribution will make an impact, such as travel or necessities.
