53 Welsh students heading to the US & China in 2019!

We a brilliant day at Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Glantaf today celebrating the successes of the 53 Welsh sixth form students from the @serennetwork who are heading to the US (and even Beijing, China!) for the Yale Young Global Scholars and Harvard Summer School summer programmes supported by full scholarships in 2019.

In 2018, we worked with Welsh Government to establish the first Seren International summer opportunity which supported 16 students to access this life-changing opportunity. This year E-Qual has expanded Seren’s international initiatives and delivered information sessions about global education opportunities to more than 1,500 pupils across Wales, resulting in the number of Seren students going overseas more than tripling in 2019. 30 Seren students will be heading to Yale Young Global Scholars and 23 will be heading to the Harvard Summer School. Two of the 53 students will be travelling to the Yale Center in Beijing!

It’s a pleasure to establish and promote these opportunities to young people across Wales and we’re currently raising sponsorship to support these pupils’ flights.

Diwrnod gwych heddiw yn Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Glantaf yn dathlu llwyddiant 53 disgyblion @rhwydwaithseren o draws y wlad sydd wedi gael i ddewis i gymryd rhan yn rhaglennu ysgolion haf ym mhrifysgolion Yale a Harvard eleni! Mae’n bleser i sefydlu a hyrwyddo’r cyfleodd hyn i bobl ifanc ar draws Cymru ac rydym yn codi nawdd i gefnogi costau hedfan y myfyrwyr hefyd.
