Young Scholars Summer Programme, High School & College Students
Young Scholars Programme (YSP)

Young Scholars Programme (YSP) is a unique summer programme which introduces high school students to liberal arts and sciences education. YSP is as an online certified, five-day long programme where students are exposed to different disciplines through academic work, writing and multimedia learning. YSP includes a range of activities including faculty presentations, creative workshops and discussion groups. YSP is for high school students studying in class 9,10,11 and 12. With its unique interdisciplinary coursework taught by world-class faculty, this programme is an excellent introduction to the pedagogy of liberal arts and sciences. This is also a perfect gateway to both range and depth of multidisciplinarity at Ashoka University.


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 in 2022. This year, students who appeared for class 12th board exams are also eligible for YSP. Applicants fill an online form submitting their high school marks and write an essay. They should demonstrate intellectual curiosity and have the ability to explore different ideas. Classes are held as per Indian Standard Time (IST).

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.
