Citizens Thinkers Writers is a two-week summer residential program and year-long fellowship program at Yale University for rising seniors from New Haven public schools who are interested in exploring fundamental human questions in a college setting. In small seminars led by professors, you will join in a long-running philosophical conversation that dates back to ancient Greece and Rome, and will link this conversation to your own experiences as citizens of twenty-first-century New Haven. You will also…

  • Experience life on a college campus (students live in Yale dorms Sunday-Friday from July 12-24)
  • Become part of a small community of intellectually ambitious students
  • Receive mentorship and college application support from Yale undergraduates
  • Learn from local field trips, guest speakers, and more!
