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

Participants will enhance their academic skills, receive university admission and financial aid application guidance, and join a network of young leaders from across Africa. Following the program, students will be paired with mentors who will help advise them throughout the university application process.

All eligible students are encouraged to apply, however please note that our admissions committee will give preference to high-achieving, low-income (i.e. “HALI”) students who do not have university guidance in their schools or communities.

2023 Update

In 2023, Yale Young African Scholars (YYAS) will offer a residential program in addition to its online program.

As we continue to adjust back to in-person programming amid an ongoing pandemic, the residential program will be smaller than in prior years. Moreover, prospective applicants should review the costs for the residential program. Additionally, there are no costs for participation in the online program.
