IIASA Young Scientists Summer Programme 2023| DETAILS.


Applications for the IIASA Young Scientists Summer Programme 2023 are now open. IIASA offers a summer program for Ph.D. students to undertake a scientific project on a topic related to the IIASA research agenda.

Deadline: January 12, 2023

Annually, from 1 June to 31 August, IIASA hosts up to 50 doctoral students from around the world in its Young Scientists Summer Programme (YSSP). Participation in the YSSP is only possible for one summer (however, you may apply several times) and you will need to be present at the institute (i.e. no fieldwork or working remotely) for the full duration of the program.

NMO Fellowships: Most of the institute’s National Member Organizations (NMOs) provide special grants to enable young scientists (either their nationals or foreign students studying in their country) to participate in the YSSP. Note: only limited slots are available so there is a chance that selected candidates will not get funding from an NMO due to high demand).

The stipend varies slightly among NMOs, but usually, it is €1,500 per month plus airfare. If you are not a citizen of or resident in an NMO country you must find alternative funds (either from your home institution or other sources) to finance participation.

Special Fellowships: Applicants not eligible for an NMO scholarship must find alternative funds from their home institution or other sources to finance their participation. IIASA has limited funds for exceptional applicants from non-NMO countries. These are awarded as part of the selection procedure.




The program is designed for Ph.D. students (ideally about 2 years before receiving their Ph.D.) working on a topic compatible with ongoing research at IIASA and a wish to explore the policy implications of their work.

Participants will be working under the direct mentorship of an experienced IIASA scientist in a unique interdisciplinary and international research environment. They will produce a paper (serving as the first step towards a publishable journal article) and will get the opportunity to build up contacts for future collaboration within the institute’s worldwide network.

Applicants from all countries are welcome, although IIASA gives priority to citizens or residents of National Member Organizations (NMO) countries.
