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 will sponsor 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
In 2011, a generous gift from a YSSP alumnus Dr. Petr Aven established the Petr Aven YSSP Fellowship to fund a young researcher from Russia or a developing country that is not a member of IIASA until 2021. The fellowship has supported eight YSSP fellows to date. The 2018 recipient is Ekaterina Anstygina from Russia.
Established in 2015, the Ferrero Fellowship supports YSSP fellows, whose research interests align with IIASA expertise and research strategy, and contribute to Ferrero's long-term commitment to sustainable sourcing of raw materials. The fellowship has supported five YSSP fellows to date. The 2018 recipients are Muhammad Nurariffudin and Fumi Harahap. Read more on Ferrero's collaboration with IIASA.
