RSE Young Academy of Scotland Welcomes 44 New Members

New cohort of members includes outstanding members of Scotland’s refugee community

The RSE Young Academy of Scotland (YAS) is pleased to announce the appointment of 44 new members.  These members will make up the fourth intake cohort and join YAS’s existing members in realising its mission ‘to achieve transformative societal change through citizenship, innovation, collaboration, evidence, and leadership’. The group comprising 25 women and 19 men in their early-to-mid careers from across Scotland, will bring a range of important and diverse skills to YAS.

For the first time in YAS’s history, the cohort includes four members who have been appointed through YAS’s At-Risk Academic/Refugee (ARAR) membership initiative.  The ARAR initiative was launched this year to recognise young professionals of outstanding talent from Scotland’s refugee and migrant communities. Going forward, four spaces will be reserved for at-risk academics and refugees in each of the academy’s next two recruitment rounds.
