What is the ISA?

The International Summer Award (ISA) provides a stipend for one summer experience abroad for eligible undergraduate students receiving a Yale scholarship.

  • The ISA provides a percentage of the program budget, based on the student's need for financial aid in 2017-2018.
  • Students participating in an ISA eligible program may be eligible for ISA funding.
  • The maximum amount of ISA funding will not exceed $12,500.

The ISA can help fund these ISA eligible programs*:

  • Global Summer Program (for programs 4 weeks or longer)
  • Non-Yale Summer Abroad programs for which students have been approved by the Study Abroad Office to receive credit
  • Yale-coordinated international internships of eight or more weeks in duration
  • An independently-secured international internship or an international internship with a third-party provider for which students have been approved by the Office of Career Strategy (see OCS website for details)
  • Yale in London summer courses
  • Yale Summer Session Programs Abroad

*Note that in addition to applying for the ISA by the ISA deadline, you must also follow and adhere to deadlines for the ISA-eligible approved programs. For deadline information about ISA-eligible programs, please visit the program websites.

Quote: This program has changed my outlook, and I feel more encouraged now to pursue theater professionally. (...) I would not have been able to participate if I did not receive the Yale International Summer Award. I thank all the donors who made this experience for me possible.
