Applications for YAS Membership Now Open

Applications for membership of the RSE Young Academy of Scotland (YAS) are now open, and application forms may be accessed via the RSE Website here (you will have to register / log in to apply).  A separate form for use only by applicants applying through our refugee professionals / at- risk scholars' membership scheme may be found here. This year’s application deadline is 29 April 2016.

Applications are sought from early to mid-career professionals (mid 20s to early 40s) who have demonstrated a high level of excellence in their work, along with a breadth of engagement beyond their workplace to benefit not only their profession but also society in general.  This is the primary criterion for selection.

YAS launches At-Risk Academic and Refugee Member Initiative

Scotland’s top young researchers and practitioners come together to recognise the outstanding talent in its refugee communities and challenge Europe’s other young academies to follow their lead.

A ground-breaking initiative will be launched this week by the RSE Young Academy of Scotland (YAS) to reserve four membership spaces in each of its next three recruitment rounds for at-risk academics and refugees living in Scotland.

In 2015 well over one million refugees arrived in Europe and the numbers for 2016 are headed in the same direction. One of the biggest challenges facing all European nations is integration. YAS, established in 2011 by the Royal Society of Edinburgh to bring together Scotland’s top young thinkers to achieve transformative change, is reserving four spaces, in each of its next three recruitment rounds, for at-risk academics and refugees in recognition of many talented young professionals from these communities who have the potential to make outstanding contributions to the nation’s future prosperity.
