Eligible Countries: All countries

Scholarship country:Scholarships will take place in  Yale University, New Haven, USA and Beijing, China.

Award Info: YYGS will award scholarships to international students who demonstrate financial need. The application for partial and full scholarships are included in the online program application and must be completed by the 2017 application deadline. It is recommended that parents or guardians of applicants help students complete the required financial information.

We will award scholarship money based on need demonstrated in your completed application. Last year, approximately one third of program participants received full or partial scholarships based on financial need. Unfortunately, YYGS financial assistance cannot cover travel expenses, and we cannot guarantee financial aid to all those who apply for it.

The 2012 name change from Ivy Scholars to Young Global Scholars reflects the program’s continuing mission to educate increasing numbers of international students and to expose students from the United States and abroad to global issues, international affairs, American government in comparative perspective, and policy leadership. In the summers of 2015 and 2016, participants represented all 50 states and over 100 countries. Countries represented included China, Brazil, Turkey, India, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and Mexico, as well as Myanmar, Tunisia, Kenya, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Poland, Afghanistan, and many more.
