In your freshman and sophomore years, you may be looking to develop your skills in a new language, or experience a specific culture for the first time. Your freshman and sophomore years are also a good time for you to explore areas of academic or professional interest which may inform the choices you make later on at Yale. Fellowships can help you add to your education at Yale and far beyond.
Undertaking a self-designed research or public service project, or an unpaid internship with the support of fellowship funding is just one possibility for your summer. For opportunities including structured study abroad and Yale co-ordinated internship programs, explore the CIPE website.
Tip: Did you know that you can search the Yale Student Grants Database by class year to find fellowships for which freshmen or sophomores are eligible?
