Yale University has announced applications for the 2017 session of Yale Young Global Scholars Program (YYGS), a two week session for high school students from across the globe.
YGS is a residential program hosted in one of Yale’s twelve residential colleges in the US. Students admitted into the highly-selective program get a taste of the varsity’s experience through the use of Yale libraries, classrooms, dining halls and dorms.
“Building off the success of last year’s expansion, we are excited to offer two new sessions -Frontiers of Math and Science session (FMS) and Sustainable Development & Social Entrepreneurship (SDSE). Both of these sessions address topics that students have expressed widespread interest in exploring further,” Erin Schutte Wadzinski, Director of YYGS, said in a statement.
In all six sessions, students will attend lectures by Yale faculty, as well as smaller, seminars taught by Yale undergraduate and graduate students.
Over the course of the two-week program, students will also work in Capstone project groups to identify problems in a specific topic, conduct rigorous background research, and propose impactful solutions to their peers and instructors.
