Day in the Life

A World Fellow’s time on the Yale campus is short, but sweet. It’s also anything but typical. Days are action-packed, including sessions with other members of the cohort, student liaisons, faculty and beyond.

The program is meant to afford Fellows a chance to evolve their world views and to refine their goals, but moments for reflection are typically sandwiched in between busy days and a whirlwind time in New Haven. Just ask our Past Fellows, or glimpse a sample schedule below (though every day is different).
