Jade's Yale scholars' venture world-class
Written on the 24 May 2016
A trip to Singapore is on the cards for Year 11 Scotch College student Jade Newbegin after being selected for a week-long Yale Young Global Scholars' program, along with 200 other students.
As part of the program at Yale-NUS College in Singapore, Jade, with three other Australian students, will have the chance to meet academics from a range of fields, including international affairs, applied science and economics.
Yale-NUS is a collaboration between Yale University in the US and the National University of Singapore. More than 2000 applicants from 30 countries submitted applications consisting of short essays, a resumé and a recommendation from the applicants' school.
Students had to write three short essays based on meaningful commitment they had taken part in, why they wanted to attend and to describe personal qualities and experiences and how this could contribute to the week-long program.
Applicants will attend an optional two-day cultural tour, a week-long on-campus program with daily elective lectures, skills workshops, seminars and a capstone project an independent research venture.
Jade said she hoped the program would lead to a greater understanding of global issues and international affairs.
She will attend lectures on relationships, health care, bioethics and neurocriminology.
"I have a particular interest in public health, which is one of the areas we will be discussing,'' Jade said.
"The program environment provides an opportunity to gain and develop connections and friendships with like-minded people around the world.''
The program runs from Saturday to June 5.
