An active, independent, and diverse group of young researchers
Introducing the Utrecht Young Academy

The Utrecht Young Academy (UYA) is a select group of 30 enthusiastic and ambitious young academics at Utrecht University. Operating as an independent organisation within the university, the UYA aims to exchange critical perspectives on academia, policy, and society in Utrecht and beyond.

It is a collaboration platform for generating ideas among young academics and influencing decision-makers on science and education policy. Throughout the year, UYA members organise a wide variety of inspiring activities for scholars, students and the public in order to boost the relationship between academia and society.

Interested in becoming a member?

UYA members come from all backgrounds, fields and disciplines, and have a passion for science and the humanities. Every year, 8 new members will be selected. Please read the guidelines for the selection procedure for more information.
