Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) Program

June, July and August 2014

The Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) Program was founded as a small pre-collegiate summer program thirteen years ago under the name Ivy Scholars. YYGS has now expanded to accommodate 600 participants and currently runs three distinct sessions: Science, Policy, and Innovation; Politics, Law, and Economics; and Studies in Grand Strategy. Summer 2014 will be the first year of the Science, Policy, and Innovation session, which will focus on understanding and confronting emerging global challenges in the areas of public health, environment, and energy. Apply by February 20, 2014.

Yale University is home to the Yale University Science Olympiad Student Club and hosts the Yale Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament.

Many Science Olympiad events are great idea-starters for contest entry videos!

Enter the 2014 Competition by April 22, 2014 to win $25,000! Middle school students can upload a short video for a chance to compete in a live, head-to-head final in October. See the teacher letter and contest overview for more info. Teachers can encourage specific students and Science Olympiad team members to enter by presenting the Nomination Certificate found here.
