YSP

YSP is a pre college programme for high-school students who are studying in Class 9, 10, 11 and 12 in May 2022. With its unique interdisciplinary coursework taught by world-class faculty, this programme is an excellent introduction to the pedagogy of liberal arts and sciences.

Eligibility
  • High school students from throughout India and across the world are eligible to apply.
  • Students should be in class 9,10, 11 or 12 while they are attending the programme, i.e. in May 2022.
  • This year, students who appeared for class 12th board exams are also eligible for YSP.
  • Applicants will need to fill an online form submitting their high school marks and write an essay. They should be able to demonstrate intellectual curiosity and have the ability to explore different ideas. Classes will be held as per Indian Standard Time (IST).
The YSP Online Experience

1. Faculty presentations – Academics and leaders from Ashoka University who have worked with some of the best universities and organizations across the world and set the absolute bar in their respective fields deliver presentations specifically designed for the Young Scholars Programme. It is an altogether different experience when a student learns from such professors who are conducting primary research in their fields too. Ranging from Economics, International Relations, Cryptography and Computer Science to History and Literature – these presentations focus on broadening the horizons of learning and exploration for the students of the YSP.

2. Breakout Discussion Sessions with Ashokans – Learning can step into altogether a different gear once a conversation focused in a small group is fueled with diverse perspectives from students coming from very different backgrounds. To ensure that the students can engage in a more nuanced discussion, the YSP cohort will be divided into smaller groups in breakout sessions and the discussion further will be facilitated by Ashoka Undergraduate student counsellors.

3. Founder Talks – Ashoka University’s founders represent some of India’s leading institution builders entrepreneurs, academicians and industry stalwarts. This exclusive series of interactive sessions will give the YSP scholars an opportunity to have a closed group conversation with Ashoka Founders, like Dr. Pramath Raj Sinha,  Ashish Dhawan, Deep Kalra, Sanjeev Bikhchandani and more. A dedicated session with the Ashoka Admissions gives the young scholars a view into the process of applying to Ashoka University.

4. The Art of Writing – In a world where resumes of even the best of students are stacked up with similar marks and activities, it’s tough being inventive, creative and relevant, even when it comes to answering seemingly simple questions like, ‘Tell us something about yourself’. Writing as a skill is not just about what language you speak or how good your vocabulary is, but more about being able to realize who you are, where you come from and then being able to articulate your ideas in the best possible way.

Over the span of the YSP, the writing programme aims to develop creative and critical reading, thinking and writing skills that will help students engage with the world of ideas and enable them to develop and express their own ideas in a well-reasoned, lucid and engaging manner. Writing is taught through multiple lenses like memes, cartoons, poetry, storytelling, resumes, SOPs and more.

5. Online Experiential Activities – The YSP experience is includes several activities that YSP students choose and engage with on a daily basis. Every year YSP offers a spectrum of artists and professionals with expertise in things we call, skills for life. This gives the students an opportunity to pick up something new, do something they never thought they could do or rediscover a side of themselves that they had forgotten! Some of these experiential activities include music, theater, slam poetry, debating, negotiations and more.

Who is the YSP For?

The YSP is for students who feel that studying just a single discipline in high school is holding them back and for those who wish to broaden their horizons of learning and explore what a liberal arts and sciences education is all about. This is done using a unique interdisciplinary coursework prepared specifically for the Young Scholars Programme.

For high school students who aren’t satisfied with the level of teaching or the education they’ve received in general, learning from the absolute stellar faculty at Ashoka University that teaches at YSP made students feel much more empowered. Every single professor who teaches at YSP is a stalwart of their field and in most cases, the same person behind a lot of things we grew up reading.

– A bunch of scholars in the previous cohorts were simply confused and didn’t know what to pursue in future. YSP gave them a flavour of and access to a broad spectrum of disciplines to explore. This helped them develop an ability to think and analyze situations with an interdisciplinary approach and multiple perspectives.

For students who were particularly sure of what they wanted to pursue in college, the YSP laid down and strengthened the foundation necessary for any undergraduate education.

Ranging from proteins, energy, environment, to machine learning, theory of relativity and impact of ice-age on migration of birds – these presentations focus on broadening the horizons of learning and exploration for the students of the YSP-Sciences.

YSP-Sciences participants will get an opportunity to ask questions about various scientific phenomena that they see in their daily lives: why some popcorns are round and others have a butterfly kind of a shape, how polarised light is used in 3D movies, sunglasses and windows of an aeroplane, how is gold plated on a cheaper metal in artificial jewellery, what causes fluorescence in glow bangles, etc. The session will also provide students a deeper understanding of model organisms. Model organisms are non-human species that are used in the laboratory to help scientists understand biological processes.
