Yale Young African Scholars

Yale Young African Scholars


The Yale Young African Scholars (YYAS) Programme is an intensive academic and enrichment programme designed for African secondary school students who plan to pursue tertiary education and wish to make meaningful impact as young leaders on the continent.


APPLICATION WINDOW

CLOSED


DEADLINE

6 Feb 2018


PRIZES

Participants will

- enhance their academic skills,
- receive university admission and financial aid application guidance,
- join a network of young leaders from across Africa, and
- receive free accommodation along with three meals a day

Following the programme, students will be paired with mentors from local organizations and American university students who will help advise them throughout the university application process.

Students will be responsible for travel expenses as well as any other incidental expenses they choose to incur.

However, students from low-income backgrounds who demonstrate financial need may apply for a limited number of travel grants offered by the programme.
The grant will cover the cost of a roundtrip plane ticket between a student’s home country and the programme location.


OTHER KEY DATES

Yale Young African Scholars 2018 Programme will be held in two locations:
Rwanda: 29 July - 07 August, 2018
Ghana: 11 August - 20 August, 2018




Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
