International School for Young Astronomers (ISYA) 2023 Travel Scholarships for African Students


Summary


The school is organized by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (NASL), and the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO). This school will take place over three weeks and is aimed towards early graduate students (MSc/PhD) in Physics, Astronomy or Astrophysics from African countries. However, we will also consider final-year BSc students with a strong intention of entering a graduate program in Astronomy and Astrophysics. The lecturers have invited experts from around the world.


Benefit:


Acceptance to the school covers flights to and from South Africa (including domestic flights), accommodation and subsistence at the ISYA. All selected students are expected to commit 100% of their time to participate in all the planned activities over the three-week duration of the school (we will start each day at 9am and end at about 7pm).


Eligibility:


  • This school will take place over three weeks and is aimed towards early graduate students (MSc/PhD) in Physics, Astronomy or Astrophysics from African countries.
