The Yale Young Global Scholars-Singapore Program (YYGS-Singapore) is an immersive week-long academic enrichment and skills-based practicum designed for outstanding high school students from around the world to encourage their drive, energy, vision, and potential to make a meaningful impact as young leaders. Up to 200 talented high school students will have the opportunity to learn from distinguished Yale and Yale-NUS faculty, Yale and Yale-NUS students, and practitioners, all while experiencing residential life at the state-of-the-art Yale-NUS College in Singapore.
By combining year-long mentorship with a current Yale or Yale-NUS student and opportunities to engage with a host of like-minded peers, YYGS-Singapore will set a new generation of young leaders on the path toward continued success in high school, college, and beyond, all in one of the most culturally-vibrant and influential cities in the world.
*NEW* Prior to the YYGS-Singapore program, there will be an optional 2-day field trip from May 28-29 for interested participants to experience what makes Singapore one of the most influential cities in the world. From visiting the awe-inspiring Gardens By The Bay to taking a foodie’s tour of Chinatown and Little India, students will also be exposed to the cultural vibrancy of this global hub.
