Sponsored outbound international travel from the United States, including study abroad and fellowships, is suspended for Yale College students for the duration of the fall 2020 term. This decision is final for the fall term and will not change even if circumstances should change in the destination country.


Yale students have a free subscription to the Daily Chatter, a great resource for keeping up with global news presented from a non-partisan perspective. We highly recommend this resource.
