The 2013/14 Annual Fund campaign has launched. Thank you to those who already have shown their support!
Your gift can make a difference to the future of an exceptional young scientist from a development country like Yihun Dile. Listen to his experience as a 2013 YSSPer made possible by our generous donors.
Your support will give a young researcher from a developing country the opportunity to:
The Program ensures that the young scientists return to their home countries with new skills and a worldwide network of research contacts.
You can make a difference to the future of an exceptional young scientist from a developing country by making a contribution to IIASA's Annual Fund.
Pheakkdey Nguon, the 2012 Annual Fund recipient, has recently won an IPCC Fellowship to fund his research on REDD+ in Cambodia and would also like to thank the annual fund donors for his opportunity:
"I am more than grateful for my YSSP experience and for that I cannot thank the IIASA Annual Fund donors enough for their generosity. As a student from Cambodia, I do not think it would have been possible for me to be part of this superb program at IIASA without their support. The YSSP did tremendous wonder to my academic development as a young researcher. More than this, the social and cultural experiences and memories that I was able to make with my fellow YSSPers and IIASA staff were just the icing on the cake.
My specific message to the IIASA Annual Fund donors would be: Please continue to support this wonderful program. Your contributions have made a great difference for me, and I hope that students from other developing countries will be able to benefit from this program.”
In 2011, a generous gift from IIASA Alumnus Petr Aven established the Petr Aven Fellowship, under the framework of the Annual Fund, to fund a young researcher from Russia or a developing country that is not a member of IIASA.
