What is YSPA?
YSPA is a 2-week online + 4-week residential research and enrichment program for 32 rising high school seniors who are interested in astronomy, physics, math, computer programming, and other science and tech fields.
YSPA has a small student-to-faculty ratio (32:5), so students get to know each other and the faculty very well. It’s a summer experience like no other.
YSPA 2020 has been cancelled
Given the current shutdown of all non-essential research at Yale for an indefinite period of time, as well as uncertainty concerning traveling and gathering this summer, we must make the difficult decision to cancel our plans for the 2020 Yale Summer Program in Astrophysics.
Applicants to YSPA 2020 may be invited to apply for an alternate online program that would meet over the same dates, from June 29 through August 8. If you have applied to YSPA, please check your email for information about this alternative program, or contact us for more information.
