*Students will need to take placement test to determine levels. Abroad program levels do not necessarily correspond to Yale language level.

**Ewha University is on a quarterly academic calendar that does not line up well with Yale's academic calendar. As a result, Light Fellows studying at Ewha usually choose to do so for either the Summer or Academic Year.

Program Application Notes:

  • Applications typically will not open until after Light Fellowship results are announced. It is your responsibility to check the application deadlines, but we recommend applying after you know your Light Fellowship results and only applying to the program you intend on attending. 
  • Students must enroll in the Intensive program. 

Light Fellowship Application Notes:

  • Ewha is on a quarterly academic calendar, so Fellows applying for Academic Year funding should apply for the fall, winter, and spring quarters at Ewha.
