Welcome to Freshmen Scholars at Yale!

Welcome to FSY!

Freshman Scholars at Yale (FSY) provides a cohort of incoming first-year students with the opportunity to engage early on in the Yale experience by living and studying on campus for five weeks in the summer. At no cost to them, Freshman Scholars will participate in activities, coursework, seminars, and trips designed to facilitate and enhance their transition to Yale. They will start their first semester having already been immersed in many of Yale’s resources, including the close-knit residential college system and Yale’s vibrant intellectual culture.

Freshman Scholars will be part of a larger community of college learners in Yale Summer Session. Additionally, during their five weeks on campus, Freshman Scholars will grow familiar with the city of New Haven, the Yale campus, and the people at Yale who will continue to support and interact with them throughout the year.  

The summer is a time to experience Yale in a new light and with a new purpose as the academic year approaches. Yale Summer Session’s motto says it best: Same veritas. More lux.
