The Global Young Academy invites young scholars who combine the highest level of research excellence with a demonstrated passion for delivering impact. They encourage applications from all qualified candidatesAll applicants receive consideration and will not be discriminated against with regard to race, color, ethnicity, religion, creed, sex, marital status, ancestry, physical or mental disabilities, or other factors. Applications from women, minority groups, researchers in the social sciences, arts and humanities, and scholars working in government, industry, and non-governmental sectors are particularly welcome.


  1. The call is open to all scholars working in any research-based discipline, including the sciences, medicine, engineering, social sciences, the arts, and humanities.
  2. Applicants must be able to demonstrate a high level of excellence in their discipline, ascertained by a proven track record and expected future achievements. Moreover, applicants must demonstrate a clear commitment to making a difference in society. 
  3. Applicants must have Ph.D. or equivalent degree.
  4. The Global Young Academy is committed to a broad range of programs around the world to support young scholars, promote science to a broad audience, engage in policy debate, and foster international and interdisciplinary collaboration. Applicants should provide evidence of interest or experience in one or more of these areas.
  5. Applicants should be in the early to middle years of their independent careers. The majority of the GYA members are aged 30-40 and the typical period from completion of a Ph.D. or similar degree is 3-10 years. Applicants falling outside these ranges are still invited to send their applications with a justification for why they should be considered.

The GYA is an active organization, and being a member requires a time commitment on each member’s part.
