Warm greetings from chilly New Haven. I hope this message finds you well!
I’m writing to share with you an exciting opportunity for African secondary school students (ages 14-18) to participate in the Yale Young African Scholars Program. We had a very successful program this past July and August, and are now gearing up for our next edition in 2019.
Students from ALL African countries are eligible and encouraged to apply. Next year we will host YYAS in three locations: Ghana, Kenya, and Zimbabwe, with a total of 300 students (100 per session). There are no tuition, meal, or lodging costs to participate. Travel grants are also available to those who demonstrate financial need— which, if awarded, would cover the full cost of a roundtrip plane ticket.
NB- We are particularly keen on receiving applications from students who live in rural areas, and/or do not have university guidance in their schools or communities. While students from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, our admissions committee will give preference to high-achieving, low-income (“HALI”) students.
Kindly help to circulate this Call within your respective networks, and share with any students who you think would be good candidates. The deadline is 06 February 2019. Thank you, and please let me know if you have any questions.
