The Cameroon Academy Of Young Scientists (CAYS) seeks applications from outstanding young scholars working in any research-based discipline, including the sciences, engineering, social sciences, the arts and humanities.

The Cameroon Young Academy is committed to promoting science and projecting young scholars. Applicants should be in the early to mid- years of their careers.
The CAYS encourages applications from all qualified candidates irrespective of their social, cultural, religious, economic backgrounds or gender.
Each CAYS member is expected to attend the Annual General Meeting each year and is also expected to actively contribute to the organisation’s programmes; a time commitment is thus required on each member’s part.
In the event that applicants are selected as new CAYS members, they should be available to attend the next Annual General Meeting in 2019.

Application Process
Applications should be completed personally by each candidate.
Applicants may apply online or complete and email a downloadable application form.
All completed applications should include the following:
1. CV
Maximum length of 3 pages. CVs should summarize your most significant publications and achievements. Any information beyond the 3 page limit is highly likely to be ignored by reviewers.
2. Letter of support
Please arrange for the submission of at least one letter of support for your application. Your referee(s) should be familiar with your research career. Letters should be written personally by your referee(s) in their own words. Please make available the document “Instructions for Referees” (below) to your referees. Letters of support can be submitted online via confcays2019@cayscam.org either by clicking on the link below
