The World Scholar’s Cup Tournament of Champions

Posted on:2016/12/03

Bring together the best of the World Scholar’s Cup, the annual Tournament of Champions, hosted by the Yale International Relations Association at Yale University was successfully held from 18 to 21 November 2016, in the heart of the lovely autumn.

9 selected high-achieving Nganpolingians pre-qualified for the Tournament of Champions at the Bangkok Round and competed with more than 1,200 scholars from different parts of the world.

Nganpolingians had the chance to interact with and learn directly from Yale students and faculty. Students attended a special panel on college life and on how to leverage the World Scholar’s Cup experience as part of their personal development. They met inspiring keynote speakers, including a Yale University professor. And they came away knowing what it’s like to be a student at one of the world’s greatest universities.

They got to mingle with fellow scholars from over thirty countries, a special Thanksgiving dinner, and an incredible venue for the Scholar’s Bowl, Debate Showcase, and Scholar’s Show.

Besides the learning experience, Nganpolingians also brought some medals home. The list is as follows:
