The Yale Young African Scholars Program (YYAS) is a high-intensity academic and leadership program designed for African secondary school students who have the talent, drive, energy, and ideas to make meaningful impacts as young leaders, even before they begin their university studies.
YYAS brings together students from across Africa in this seven-day, residential program and helps prepare them for the demanding application process of attending university in the United States. YYAS is an official program of Yale University.
Summer 2016 sessions will be held in three locations:
Ghana: 29 July – 4 August
Rwanda: 9 – 15 August
Zimbabwe: 20 – 26 August
There is no cost to students to participate in the Yale Young African Scholars Program.
