Yale Young Global Scholars Admits 2,400 Students Worldwide

Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) is excited to welcome a record number of 2,400 outstanding high school students from 150 countries around the world (including 54 U.S. states and territories). Beginning in June, these students will attend YYGS Connect, a virtual program that consists of two-week online sessions that facilitate global conversations in different areas of academia.

This summer’s program will introduce students from new-to-YYGS countries, including Belize, Bhutan, Guyana, Mali, Malta, Monaco, and Turkmenistan. The summer program prides itself on its unparalleled global diversity, and the virtual setting of YYGS Connect helped to increase accessibility for students from around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic.
