The Dear Tanzania Secondary School Students, Yale Young African Scholars Program (YYAS) is an initiative modeled off of the Yale Young Global Scholars Program. This program is intended solely for African students attending secondary school on the African continent.

The 2015 Yale Young African Scholars programs will be hosted by Yale University in two locations:

Rwanda: August 11 – 16
Zimbabwe: August 20 – 25

The Yale Young African Scholars Program is a high-intensity six-day program designed for African students who will graduate from secondary school in 2017 or 2018, are 18 years or younger at the time of the program, and have the talent, drive, energy, and ideas to make meaningful impacts as young leaders, even before they begin their university studies. The Yale Young African Scholars Program is an official program of Yale University. 

There is no cost to students to participate in the Yale Young African Scholars Program. Participants are, however, responsible for getting themselves to the venue at the outset of the program and their return home at the end of the program. Participants will also be responsible for any incidental expenses they elect to incur. Admitted students demonstrating financial need may apply for a limited number of travel assistance grants, intended to help defray the cost of international travel between African countries. Students can only apply for travel assistance after they have received an offer of admission to YYAS.

The programs will help students recognize and understand global issues, strategize responses, and innovate solutions while learning from Yale faculty and African undergraduate and graduate students who currently attend Yale. Students will participate in a lecture series and a number of elective seminars on a variety of topics. The demanding academic content is designed to improve students’ analytical thinking, intellectual flexibility, and written and oral communication skills. These skills will be further utilized in small workshops designed to prepare students for the demanding application processes of U.S. colleges and universities.On-site accommodation is mandatory, and will be provided for all students, along with three meals a day. There is no cost for students to participate in the program.For information on the inaugural sessions in Ghana and Ethiopia, click here >>
