Yale Young Global Scholars
Science Olympiad has an excellent relationship with Yale University, which hosts the popular Yale Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament. We'd like to offer another Yale experience and invite Science Olympiad (Division C) students to apply for Yale Young Global Scholars. For the past eight years, we have helped to expand their reach and bring more STEM-focused students to the program. Yale Young Global Scholars is a summer academic enrichment and leadership program held in June-July 2023 that brings together students from over 130 countries and all 50 U.S. states for two-week academic sessions. During YYGS, students attend lectures by Yale faculty, as well as small seminars taught by Yale undergraduate and graduate students. STEM students also work in capstone project groups to identify a global problem facing the world today, conduct rigorous background research, and propose impactful solutions to their peers and instructors. This summer, YYGS will offer sessions in Innovations of Science & Technology; Literature, Philosophy & Culture; Politics, Law, & Economics; and Solving Global Challenges. Need-based financial aid is available, and YYGS encourages students from all backgrounds to apply!
