The Alcoa Foundation and the Yale Young Global Scholars announce the launch of the Yale Young Global Scholars – Alcoa Scholarship, a US$100,000 annual fund that will allow students in China to attend the prestigious Yale Young Global Scholars-Beijing (YYGS-Beijing) Program. The scholarship will provide financial help to high school level students who would otherwise lack the financial means to attend the program, covering all tuition fees and transportation costs.
The Alcoa Foundation invests where Alcoa has a presence to further sustainability and to partner with communities in addressing local needs as they adapt to a rapidly changing world. The Yale Young Global Scholars – Alcoa Scholarship will provide 18 scholarships worth US$100,000 in total, to qualified students who attend high school in China. The scholarship will allow them to attend YYGS-Beijing, a highly selective, immersive 9-day pre-collegiate experience designed to cultivate the next generation of Chinese leaders and China scholars held at Yale Center Beijing from February 3-11, 2017.
