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 is an official program of Yale University, in proud partnership with the Higherlife Foundation.
Applicants must be in their second-to-last year of secondary school, be between the ages of 14 – 18 at the time of the program, and must be an African national currently residing in an African country. For country specific eligibility requirements, see here.
The application is available online. Admission to the program is highly selective, and there is no cost to participate in YYAS.
