We encourage students from all financial backgrounds to apply for the Yale Young Global Scholars-Beijing Program.

Tuition for the 2017 Yale Young Global Scholars-Beijing Program is $1,000 USD (​¥6500 RMB), which includes instruction, housing, three meals per day, and processing fees. Students are responsible for transportation to and from Beijing. There is no fee to apply.


A non-refundable deposit of $500 USD, payable online, is due approximately two weeks after decisions are released. The remaining tuition balance of $500 USD is due at the end of December. If you are paying by wire transfer, please download these YYGS-Beijing Wire Transfer Instructions and then email with your receipt.


Thanks to the generosity of our two program sponsors, Qooco and the Alcoa Foundation, half of all students admitted to YYGS-Beijing will receive a full tuition, need-based scholarship to attend the program! In addition, all students who currently attend high school in China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Myanmar and who demonstrate financial need will also be eligible for a travel grant covering up to 100% of travel costs to and from Beijing. All students are automatically eligible for the scholarship by completing the “Scholarship” portion of the online application. 

We will award scholarship based on greatest need demonstrated in your completed application. It is recommended that parents or guardians of applicants help students complete the required financial information.
