Most of the institute's National Member Organizations (NMOs) provide special grants to enable young scientists (either their own nationals or foreign students studying in their country) to participate in the YSSP. Note: only limited slots 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 € 1500 per month plus airfare. If you are not citizen of or resident in an NMO country you must find alternative funds (either from your home institution or other sources) to finance participation.
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.
There are various funding opportunities for successful candidates who do not have funding such as:
- The YSSP Fund - supporting students from developing countries
- The Petr Aven Fellowship for exceptional scientists from Russia
- The Prof. Jyoti and Prof. Kirit Parikh Fellowship with the aim to provide much needed support for talented researchers from India and other developing countries
- The Roger Levien Fellowship offering Pardee RAND Graduate School students an opportunity to participate in the YSSP
