The 2017 application for the Yale Young African Scholars Program (YYAS) is now available! YYAS is a high-intensity program that brings together African secondary school students for a cost-free seven-day residential program designed to introduce students to the demanding U.S. university and financial aid application process and requirements. In 2016, YYAS hosted programs in Ghana, Rwanda, and Zimbabwe and welcomed 300 African high school students into its growing alumni network.

Administered by the Yale Young Global Scholars Program and building off that model of interdisciplinary academic curriculum, YYAS participants will attend lectures led by prominent Yale faculty, seminars developed by Yale student instructors, and experiential exercises designed to augment their leadership skills.

Participants will engage in robust intellectual exchanges that are crucial to understanding Africa’s most pressing challenges and opportunities. In addition to the introduction to university application processes, Yale student-led courses and leadership training, YYAS also offers students standardized test preparation sessions at no cost to the students.

The 2017 Yale Young African Scholars Program will be hosted in:
Rwanda: July 27 August 2
Ghana: August 7 – August 13
Mauritius: August 18- August 24

Prospective applicants must be citizens of an African country and currently attend school on the African continent. Applicants will have two years left before completing high school and be between the ages of 14-18.“We are excited to offer the 2017 Yale Young African Scholars Program in a new Southern African country this year, and look forward to participants getting a taste of student life at African Leadership University,” said Laura Kaub, Program Manager of YYAS.

Thanks to the generous support of the HigherLife Foundation, YYAS is free of cost to all accepted students. We are also able to offer travel stipends for students from low-income backgrounds.The online application is available through the program web site. The application deadline is March 16, 2017, at 11:59pm EST.For additional information, please visit africanscholars.yale.edu or contact us at [email protected]
