YAF Ghana Scholar Program is an initiative that helps determined and talented, low-income students to gain scholarships to prestigious universities around the world.


YAF Ghana does not award university scholarships. Rather, we provide free resources including tuition, SAT/ACT registration, availability of hostel and board, books, internet access, and application documentation.
Once YAF Ghana students are admitted to universities or scholarship programs, it is the universities or the scholarship programs that offer scholarships.

Every year, YAF Ghana selects ten students from hundreds of applicants. Once admitted, students receive intensive preparation for the SAT examinations from tutors including students from US colleges.

Scholars are also supported in their college application processes by U.S college application experts and mentors.
The preparation takes place at YAF Ghana’s head office at Ayeduase, Kumasi, and spans a period of 20 weeks between June to November.

All costs are financed by YAF Ghana. Students pay nothing.
