We recognise that Scotland’s refugee and asylum seeking communities include many people who can make meaningful contributions to Scotland. Since 2016, we have committed to recruiting At-Risk Academics and Refugee (ARAR) professionals as members.
YAS provides ARAR members with access to its network and helps them to regain some of the social and professional capital they lost during their displacement. We firmly believe YAS benefits from their talents, experience, and unique perspectives.
There are no membership fees for ARAR members. Financial support is available to cover costs of ARAR members participating in YAS.
Applications are now closed.
Applications are closed for membership to the Young Academy of Scotland. Many thanks to everyone who applied.
YAS will be in touch with all ARAR candidates in due course, to let them know whether they were shortlisted for an interview.
