2017 Summer Program. The Yale Young Global Scholars Program (YYGS)

The Yale Young Global Scholars Program (YYGS) is offering six full-tuition plus travel scholarships for high school students from the African continent to attend 2017 YYGS at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, USA. YYGS is committed to increasing education access for high achieving students of all backgrounds so these scholarships are entirely need-based. These need-based scholarships will cover tuition, airfare and travel expenses to the program. 
To be eligible for these full-tuition plus travel scholarships, applicants must:

·        Meet general eligibility requirements to apply to YYGS;
·        Be a citizen of an African country and currently reside on the continent;
·        Have attended school in an African country for most of the applicant’s education;
·        Complete the Yale Young Global Scholars online application, including the need-based scholarships portion

In order to be eligible for these scholarships,
applicants must meet ALL of the requirements listed above. The online application, including the need-based scholarships portion and all supplemental materials, must be submitted by January 31, 2017. No additional steps are required to be considered for this scholarship.
 
The Yale Young Global Scholars Program is a summer academic enrichment and leadership program that brings together outstanding high school students from around the world for intensive two-week sessions on the Yale campus. Applications are available online at http://globalscholars.yale.eduThe application deadline is January 31, 2017. Please share this opportunity with anyone who may be interested!

Sincerely,

The YYGS Team

P.S. Please note that six students from the African continent will receive these full tuition plus travel scholarships, however every admitted student that completes the need-based scholarship portion of the application will be considered for a tuition discount. Last year, approximately one third of program participants received full or partial scholarships based on financial need. Unfortunately, YYGS cannot guarantee tuition discounts to all those who apply for it.
