Be a Yale Young African Scholar– Tona Akerele

Yale Young African Scholars is a prestigious program for any students on the African continent in grades 10 and 11 that are looking to widen their perspectives and open themselves to more opportunities!

My Experience With The Program

Yale Young African Scholars has been going on for about 3 years, I was able to participate in last year’s program.

The venue, living spaces, and experiences far exceeded my expectations for the program and I would recommend it to anyone anywhere.

The locations this year are Rwanda, Ghana, and Mauritius.

African students, explore your own continent a little and apply NOW.

Check out their website here and also check out my video explaining the program and requirements.
