Yale Young Global Scholars

The Yale Young Global Scholars Program for Outstanding High School Students offers two innovative, intensive, summer educational experiences.

Politics, Law, and Economics Program (PLE)

  • Focus on the great ideas and thinkers in the American intellectual tradition, covering political philosophy, democracy, constitutional law, political economy, and financial literacy.
  • Key deliberative exercises may include writing and presenting a political campaign speech, publicly defending a legal opinion, and engaging in a Constitutional Convention simulation.

Studies in Grand Strategy Program (GS)

  • Focus on strategic lessons from history and their application to contemporary international affairs
  • Key deliberative exercises may include participating in an international crisis simulation and negotiation, and writing and presenting a group policy paper on a critical global challenge

Common to Both Experiences

Both are official Yale programs directly administered by Yale officials and feature Yale faculty. Additionally, students in both programs:

  • Interact with renowned professors, top practitioners, and outstanding Yale undergraduate and graduate students. The student to faculty ratio is 6:1, which means you get a lot of personal attention.
  • Learn how to think critically, speak powerfully, and write persuasively, based on personal feedback and coaching from the faculty. The pace is intense, with a great deal of work, which is designed to appeal to high school students who crave a challenge.
  • Customize the program for your interests: core classes and lectures are mandatory, but you will also choose from about 40 specialized seminars, based on your interests.
  • Live in a Yale Residential College, eat at Yale’s dining halls, use Yale’s libraries, access Yale’s online resources, and use Yale’s athletic facilities, all while under 24-hour professional, adult supervision.
  • Meet and make friends with outstanding high school students from across the United States and around the world.  Last year almost 30% of students were from 25 countries, including China, South Korea, India, Pakistan, Angola, Morocco, Nepal, Russia, and Tanzania.
