Approved Programs

Yale faculty and staff have approved the following programs for Light Fellows to pursue intensive Japanese language study. 

Depending on your academic and personal goals, you might find that a certain program is better suited to your needs than others. Carefully review the page for each approved site for any specific notes or requirements

 All Light-Fellowship approved programs that are eligible for credit are considered Non-Yale Study Abroad programs and the International Study Award and Yale Financial Aid may be applied to participation in these programs. Please meet with Kripa Bhagat (Assistant Director, Light Fellowship) if you are interested in applying or participating in this program and applying funding outside of the Light Fellowship to the experience. 

Due to the possibility of travel restrictions, the Light fellowship has approved the Middlebury Language Schools in Vermont for Summer 2022.
