The Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS)耶鲁全球青年学者项目

 

耶鲁全球青年学者项目(YYGS)由耶鲁大学官方筹办,是一个为全球高中生准备的、两周的、竞争性极强的领导力发展项目。入选难度大,致力于为精英高中生培养跨学科应用能力,国际意识及成为课堂内外领袖的思辨能力及交际能力。

项目将一学期的课程压缩到两周,并非只是浅尝辄止的体验,而是从学习社交到日常起居全方位地让青年学者们融入“耶鲁的生活”。

此项目重在帮助学生提供一个全新的学习环境,探索全新的学术兴趣,所以并不会为学生提供大学学分,也不会开具任何证明。2016夏天,48%的参与者来自美国以外,代表102个不同的国家。

 

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.

耶鲁全球青年学者(YYGS)项目源于13年前建立的名为常青藤学者的高中暑期项目。YYGS现在能容纳600名参与者,分为三个部分:科学、政策和创新;政治、法律和经济;重大战略的研究。

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.

2014年的夏天,科学、政策和创新部分首次启动,这个部分聚焦于理解和应对全球范围内公共健康、环境和能源领域的全新挑战。

The 2012 name change from Ivy Scholars to Young Global Scholars reflects the program’s continuing mission to educate increasing numbers of international students and to expose students from the United States and abroad to global issues, international affairs, American government in comparative perspective, and policy leadership. In summer 2013, 40% of participants came from outside of the United States. Countries represented included China, Brazil, Turkey, India, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and Mexico, as well as Myanmar, Tunisia, Kenya, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Poland, Afghanistan, and many more.

2012年我们的名称从常青藤学者更改为全球青年学者,这反映了本项目的使命:教育不断增多的国际学生,以及带领学生从探索美国事务到全球问题、国际关系、从对比角度看待的美国政府以及政治领导力。在2013夏天,40%的参与者来自非美国地区。代表性国家包括中国、巴西、土耳其、印度、新加坡、英国、墨西哥、缅甸、突尼斯、肯尼亚、秘鲁多米尼克共和国、波兰、阿根廷等国家。

The program is highly selective and gives students an unforgettable summer experience. To give students room to flourish in a new learning environment and to explore new academic interests, YYGS does not offer course credit, nor do students receive any quantitative evaluation during or after the program.

这个项目入选难度很高,会给学生难忘的暑期经历。为了给学生在一个新环境中健康成长和探索新的学科兴趣的空间,YYGS不提供课程学分,也不会对学生进行任何评分。
