The Yale Young African Scholars Program (YYAS) is a high-intensity five-day program designed for African students who will graduate from secondary school in 2015 or 2016, 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.
This is a new initiative that is modeled off of the Yale Young Global Scholars Program. These sessions, in Ghana and Ethiopia, are the first sessions to take place outside of Yale’s campus in New Haven, Connecticut. These sessions are intended solely for African students attending secondary school on the African continent.
The 2014 inaugural Yale Young African Scholars programs will be hosted by Yale University in two locations:
Ghana from 11 – 15 August 2014
Ethiopia from 18 – 22 August 2014
Deadline: May 16, 2014
