Yale Young African Scholars

Congratulations to the following students:

1. Jolayemi Favour
2. Agbateyiniro Dede
3. Odhigbo Elo
4. Solomon Mayowa
5. Yusuf Anjolaoluwa
6. Myam James
7. Titus-Adewunmi Jesutomiwa

The above named participated in applying for the Yale Young African Scholars 2017 Programme. According to the selection committee they were extremely impressed by the outstanding achievements, ambitions, and enthusiasm of this year’s applicants. The 2017 applicant pool was larger than ever before with over 1,600 candidates. They made for a very diverse and competitive pool of applicants representing over 35 different African countries and hundreds of secondary institutions. This made it very difficult to choose just 300 candidates. The program is designed to bring together students with the talent, drive, energy, and ideas to make meaningful impacts as young leaders, even before they begin their university studies.


Odhigbo Elo

According to the team, there was great potential in Elo Odhigbo’s application, and they believe that with another year of academic success and personal enrichment, she will be a highly competitive candidate for YYAS 2018. Therefore, she has been given the opportunity to re-apply next year.


Titus-Adewunmi Jesutomiwa

Among the 300 selected, we are thrilled that Titus-Adewunmi Jesutomiwa was among the 300 young people chosen as a Yale African Scholar. She will be joining other winners in Rwanda in August. This will give her an enormous opportunity to pursue her career in Yale University, USA later on. CONGRATULATIONS Jesutomiwa.

Proof yet again that TAICO is preparing students for future leadership roles.
