The Yale Young African Scholars Program (YYAS) is an intensive academic and enrichment program designed for African secondary school students planning to pursue tertiary education and who wish to make meaningful impact as young leaders on the continent.
Participants will enhance their academic skills, receive university admission and financial aid application guidance, and join a network of young leaders from across Africa. Following the program, students will be paired with mentors from local organizations and U.S. university students who will help advise them throughout the university application process. There is no cost to students to participate in YYAS.
YYAS is an official program of Yale University.
YYAS 2018 will take place from:
29 July – 7 August in Kigali, Rwanda
and 11 – 20 August in Accra, Ghana
Deadline for application: February 6, 2018
