YSSP Fund - supporting visionary young scientists

Since its beginnings in 1977, the Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) has been central to the IIASA mission by cultivating individual expertise, fostering interdisciplinary cooperation and building global networks. The YSSP Fund provides financial support for selected YSSP fellows to participate in the program and join the worldwide network of over 1,800 young researchers from more than 50 countries who have spent three summer months at IIASA over the past 40 years.

Many YSSPers receive funding from their IIASA National Member Organizations, but each year there are gaps. With your contribution, the YSSP Fund can offer support to highly qualified students, often from developing countries, who would not otherwise be able to share the unique YSSP experience and contribute to IIASA’s scientific progress. 

YSSP Fund 2011 - 2018

Since 2011, generous donations to the YSSP Fund enabled 28 young researchers to participate in the YSSP.

The 2018 YSSP Fund sponsored seven YSSP fellows.

How will your donation be used?
€5,500 will fund one full YSSP fellowship, which may be named after the funder (read more)
€1,500 will cover the accommodation costs of one fellow
€1,000 will defray one fellow’s transport costs to IIASA
€500 will cover the meals of one fellow
€150 will buy three monthly tickets for public transport in Vienna
