YAS membership applications now open

By 13th January 2020 No Comments

We are delighted to announce that we are inviting applications to join our diverse interdisciplinary membership.

Applications are sought from early to mid-career professionals (early 20s to early 40s) who have demonstrated a high level of excellence in their work along with a passion for working with others beyond their workplace.

YAS brings together entrepreneurs, academics, business leaders, teachers and other professionals to together on projects that benefit Scotland and the world.

In addition to contributing to the public good, YAS strives to support the professional development of its members.  We do so by providing the following benefits:

  • Increasing members’ networks beyond their main area of work,
  • Attendance at events attended by key decision-makers,
  • Opportunities to work globally through collaborations with other Young Academies, and
  • Access to a mentorship programme which links YAS members with Fellows of the RSE.

Membership applications may be downloaded here– please note that you will need to register with the RSE’s website to apply. Applicants also need to seek two references, one of which must be from someone outside their current place of work.

Applications and references are due on 5pm, Monday 17 February 2020.

For more information about membership criteria, and the application process, please see our Become a Member page.
