World Social Science Forum Scholarships Awarded


We are pleased to announce that the recipients of the 2018 World Social Science (WSS) Forum Scholarship Fund have been chosen.

Forty early-career social scientists, representing 25 countries, were competitively selected from a pool of over 250 applications. The scholarship recipients will all be present at the WSS Forum from 25-28 2018 September in Fukuoka, Japan.

The WSS Forum Scholarship Fund is a travel grants fund for early-career social scientists from low- or lower-middle income countries. It is intended to secure the voices of young researchers in this global event, and provides a rare opportunity to strengthen research connections between young researchers from Asia with those in Africa, South America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Registration for the Forum is now open – find out more.
