Online application

Applications for YSSP 2019 are now being accepted! Deadline is 11 January 2019.

Submitting an application

The application process is simple and convenient. It is not necessary to complete the entire application at once; you can always add information and make changes, then leave the site and come back later.

Before sending your application you are strongly advised to get in touch with the relevant program representatives to find out about mutual interest in your intended research.

The following steps will guide you through the process: 

  • Step 1: Create a new application
    This option allows you to start a new application, and it requires only your name, an Email address and a security question. You will be sent a link which allows you to prepare and edit the application. Until the application deadline you can create a new application, edit an existing application, and submit the completed application to the program.

  • Step 2: Fill in your application

    The application requires filling in a number of boxes that ask you to provide data about your research interests, CV, motivation for applying to the program, and names of two references.

  • Step 3: Submit your application
    When you submit your application you will receive a confirmation email and further instructions. Once the application is submitted, it cannot be changed.

Reference letters

Applications cannot be considered unless your reference letters have been received. Upon finalization of your application we will send requests for recommendation to the referees proposed by applicants. They will have time to upload their letters by latest 15 January 2019 (better yet to have them ready before submitting your application).


Selection results will be announced by 12 March 2019.
