Yale's two summer programs – Politics, Law, and Economics (PLE) and Studies in Grand Strategy (GS) – are interdisciplinary in scope. Students learn from leading authorities in their areas of expertise; read primary source materials, articles, and books on a wide variety of issues; participate in lively team exercises and simulations; and gain invaluable instruction in university-level writing. The prospectus and application information for summer 2013 are now available online.
Formerly the Ivy Scholars Program, our name change this year to Yale Young Global Scholars reflects the fact that our program has developed into one of the most selective and academically rigorous high school summer programs worldwide. By exposing our students to the best scholars and practitioners in a wide range of academic and professional fields, we seek to give our students the analytical skills they will need in whatever leadership positions they may one day assume.
As an official Yale University program that is administered by University officials, you can expect a first-rate summer experience studying in beautiful campus lecture halls and classrooms, living in our famed residential colleges, eating in our award-winning dining halls, engaging with world renowned professors, and interacting with extraordinary visiting practitioners.
