ARAR Membership

ARAR Membership

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.

The 2020 recruitment round has now closed.

ARAR membership recruitment runs parallel to our standard recruitment drives, which occur every 2 years.  The next recruitment round will open in January 2022.
