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 introduces them to the demanding U.S. university application process and requirements. YYAS is an official program of Yale University.
There is no cost to students to participate in the Yale Young African Scholars Program.
