Funding options for summer students

The Yale Financial Aid Office does not award institutional Yale Scholarship aid for summer study. However, undergraduates may qualify for need-based aid from other Yale sources, as listed below. Summer students may also use outside scholarships specifically awarded for summer study; they may not use scholarship funds awarded for the academic year.

Summer​ Pell Grants

The Undergraduate Financial Aid Office processes Summer Pell Grants for students who qualify. For more information on the Summer Pell Grant, please see the  Summer Pell FAQ's (coming soon).
