Current Yale undergraduates apply to the Education Studies Scholars program in the fall of sophomore year, although several juniors may also be accepted as space allows. Students must have taken or be currently enrolled in Foundations in Education Studies, EDST 110.

Due to the pandemic and many sophomores being on leave, applications from sophomores not in residence will be considered. If these students have not yet taken EDST 110, they will be evaluated based on other EDST coursework and extent of field experience.

Applicants will receive notice of admission decisions before the start of spring semester. The 2020 Education Studies application is due by midnight on Friday October 30, 2020.
