About the Award: Yale Young Global Scholars provides scholarships to students with demonstrated financial need. The application for partial and full scholarships are included in the online program application and must be completed by the 2020 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, Yale Young Global Scholars financial assistance cannot cover travel expenses, and we cannot guarantee financial aid to all those who apply for it.
