Educational opportunity for top African secondary school students

Yale's summer program for African student leaders

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

Kenya: August 12 - 17
Zimbabwe: August 20 - 25

The Yale Young African Scholars Program (YYAS), modeled off the Yale Young Global Scholars Program, is a high-intensity six-day residential program designed for African students who have the talent, drive, energy, and ideas to make meaningful impacts as young leaders. The program features a rigorous academic curriculum with lectures and seminars taught by Yale faculty and students, leadership training, and college preparation workshops.

There is no cost to participate in the Yale Young African Scholars Program.

The applications are open to 9th and 10th graders who attend secondary school on the African continent.
