Each summer, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), located in Schloss Laxenburg near Vienna, Austria, hosts a selected group of graduate students from around the world in its Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP). These students (primarily doctoral) work closely with an IIASA senior scientist mentor on a project proposed by the student and related to his or her graduate research.
Fellows selected by IIASA will receive funding to cover travel to IIASA and a modest living allowance. Online application for 2012 is now open.
