Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Each summer, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), located in Schloss Laxenburg near Vienna, Austria, hosts a selected group of graduate students, primarily doctoral, from around the world in its Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP). These students work closely with IIASA’s senior scientists on projects related both to their thesis research and one or more IIASA research programs.
I am writing to ask for your help in publicizing IIASA's YSSP Program for 2014. The application deadline is January 13, and we want to spread the word about this great opportunity as widely as possible. Please help by forwarding the announcement to as many appropriate graduate students, graduate department secretaries, university careers offices, and listservs as possible.
The question most frequently asked concerns funding. For students selected to participate, funding is available for travel and living support, principally from IIASA’s twenty-one National Member Organizations (NMOs), who fund primarily students from NMO countries. However, applicants from all nations are eligible to apply, and some unrestricted fellowships are available.
The flyer below describes the program, and contains links to details related to applications, eligibility, and funding.
IIASA is an international, nongovernmental research institution located just outside Vienna, Austria, supported by its twenty-one National Member Organizations. IIASA is known for its interdisciplinary research, combining natural and social sciences with integrated assessment techniques and advanced mathematical methodologies, with a goal of providing policy insight on issues of regional and global importance in the following fields:
