Summer Fellowships in Austria: IIASA YSSP


Every summer from 1 June to 31 August, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) hosts up to 50 doctoral students from around the world in its Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP).

The National Member Organization for Sweden, Formas, will fund up to 4 participants from Sweden for participation in this programme.

Early career researchers at Umeå and Luleå Universities can also apply for funding through the Kempe Foundations.
