IIASA Young Scientists Summer Programme


Aim and Benefits of IIASA Young Scientists Summer Programme

  • NMO Fellowships: Most of the institute’s National Member Organizations (NMOs) provide special grants to enable young scientists (either their own nationals or foreign students studying in their country) to participate in the YSSP. Note: only limited slots are available so there is a chance that selected candidates will not get funding from an NMO due to high demand).
    • The stipend varies slightly among NMOs, but usually, it is €1,500 per month plus airfare. If you are not a citizen of or resident in an NMO country you must find alternative funds (either from your home institution or other sources) to finance participation.
  • Special Fellowships: Applicants not eligible for an NMO scholarship must find alternative funds from their home institution or other sources to finance their participation. IIASA has limited funds for exceptional applicants from non-NMO countries. These are awarded as part of the selection procedure.

Requirements for IIASA Young Scientists Summer Programme Qualification

  • The programme is designed for Ph.D. students (ideally about 2 years prior to receiving their Ph.D.) working on a topic compatible with ongoing research at IIASA and a wish to explore the policy implications of their work.
  • Participants will be working under the direct mentorship of an experienced IIASA scientist in a unique interdisciplinary and international research environment. They will produce a paper (serving as the first step towards a publishable journal article) and will get the opportunity to build up contacts for future collaboration within the institute’s worldwide network.
  • Applicants from all countries are welcome, although IIASA gives priority to citizens or residents of National Member Organizations (NMO) countries.
