Scholarships

Thanks to generous donors, YYGS is able to offer a limited number of Scholarships, which are Need-Based Financial Aid packages that cover full-tuition ($6,250 USD) and travel costs.

In order to be considered for one of these scholarships (below), you MUST complete the entire online YYGS Application, including the Need-Based Financial Aid portion, by February 6, 2019. YYGS staff will then automatically review whether or not you meet any of our 2019 scholarships’ eligibility requirements and contact you when decisions are released in late March or early April.

Please continue to check this page, as YYGS will release further information as additional scholarship opportunities become available between now and February 6, 2019.
