Baret Scholars is a global gap-year program, co-founded by Chris Whittle (Founder of Avenues) and the late Benno Schmidt (former President of Yale), for exceptional high school graduates. Feel free to read more about us in our e-book here and our brochure.

180 students from around the world will live one month each in 7 regions, on five continents. They will explore their interests in different regions via prominent local speakers, curated traveling Fellowships, and optional volunteer opportunities. 40 of our scholars will receive scholarships ranging from $10,000 to $105,000, including 20 need-based full rides.
