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 2018 GOALS
The 2018 YSSP Fund campaign has two goals:
Support four YSSP fellows in the summer of 2018.
Contact friends and colleagues from your YSSP class and from your time at IIASA and make a bigger impact together.
Support a Science Communication Fellow.
Established in 2016, this innovative fellowship supports a science writer who works closely with the IIASA Communication Department and the YSSP. IIASA’s complex systems science is hard to communicate, but wider understanding is crucial. The Communication Fellowship has triple beneficiaries: the Fellow, the YSSPers, and the IIASA message. Read the testimonials from Science Communication Fellows.
HOW WILL YOUR DONATION BE USED?
€5,500 will fund one full YSSP / Science Communication fellowship
€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
PREVIOUS YSSP FUND RECIPIENTS
Last year, generous support of alumni donors made it possible for four young scientists to participate in the YSSP 2017. We ask you to join those donors, with whatever contribution you can afford. Because we believe that science and cooperation make a difference in the world. And because YSSP makes science and cooperation happen.
In 2011, a generous gift from a YSSP Alumnus Petr Aven established the Petr Aven Fellowship, under the framework of the YSSP Fund, to fund a young researcher from Russia or a developing country that is not a member of IIASA until 2021.
