In a world of many divides, the IIASA Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) offers a common platform for young talented scientists, who get the opportunity to work together to solve problems of global importance, above regional and political disputes.
IIASA's YSSP Fund accepts donations from the IIASA community and directs the proceeds to support young scholars who are not eligible to receive a stipend from an IIASA National Member Organization.
Since its inception in 2011, donations to the YSSP Fund have opened the IIASA door to 30 young researchers from Ethiopia, Thailand, India, Colombia and many other countries.
The purpose of the Women in Science Fund at IIASA is to provide a platform of financial support to IIASA women connected to science at all career levels.
Conceived by the IIASA Women in Science Club and managed by the Women in Science Fund trustees, the fund aims to amplify the scientific contributions and profile of women connected to science.

The Howard Raiffa Fellows Program honors Prof. Raiffa’s contributions to global understanding and reinvigorates IIASA's application of decision science for analyzing and solving real world problems.
The aim of the program is to forge direct links between IIASA’s research and decision makers in business, government, and civil society. By applying decision science methodologies and evolving approaches from economics, behavioral sciences, policy analysis, information science and artificial intelligence, the program will elucidate the uncertainties and trade-offs that characterize the complex systems issues facing states, municipalities, and businesses.
Donations in honor of Prof. Howard Raiffa will fund senior and associate Raiffa fellows, who will incorporate and integrate decision science methodologies into the analyses of selected IIASA policy problems, with a particular emphasis on the use of artificial intelligence approaches to improve decision science.
Donations to the Peter E. de Jánosi Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, endowed in the name of the former IIASA Director provide support to selected scholars to spend two years of their postdoctoral research at IIASA.
The Peter E. de Jánosi fellows work in the fields related to policy and management issues. Learn more about the recipients of this fellowship.
