The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), located just outside Vienna, Austria, each year sponsors a fellowship program for graduate students who are studying in fields relevant to IIASA’s three themes of Natural Resources & Environment, Population & Society, and Energy & Technology. The Natural Resources and Environment theme includes: Land Use and Agriculture; Forestry; Evolution and Ecology; Atmospheric Pollution; and Greenhouse Gas Initiative. About 50-60 graduate students from around the world spend the summer working closely with IIASA senior researchers, on projects relevant to each student’s thesis topic. They end the summer with an international network of colleagues interested in various aspects of global change issues, and often have produced a paper that can be published.

The YSSP program is unlike any other in offering graduate students in a broad range of natural and social science, mathematical, and engineering fields an opportunity to work in an international setting on projects that allow them to explore the policy implications of their work. IIASA’s projects all look at one or another aspect of global change.

The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) is a non-governmental research organization. It conducts inter-disciplinary scientific studies on environmental, economic, technological and social issues in the context of human dimensions of global change. IIASA is located in Austria near Vienna and is sponsored by its National Member Organizations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. IIASA’s research scholars study environmental, economic, technological, and social developments. The research areas covered link a variety of natural and social science disciplines.
