Young Scientists for Africa - October 2020 Report

YoSA Students at the 61st LIYSF in 2019
YoSA Students at the 61st LIYSF in 2019

Thank you again to all of you who have donated and continue to donate as part of our GlobalGiving fundraising campaign.  

Along with the rest of world we have been adjusting to a new reality brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful that all of our alumni YoSA students are safe and well in their respective countries. The 62nd London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF) which was due to take place this summer waspostponed until next July.  We hope that the event can operate in the normal way and will delay student selection until we have better information about the nature and scope of next year’s event.

We are using this time to expand our network of African partners with whom we collaborate to identify and select talented young scientists who will benefit from our scholarships in the future. We have held discussions with the following organisations and are excited about future possibilities when we can plan with more certainty:

The Organisation for Women in Science in the Developing World who provide research training, career development and networking opportunities for women scientists throughout the developing world at different stages in their careers
The Internet Society who promote the development of the Internet as a global technical infrastructure to enrich people’s lives.
The Royal Academy of Engineering International Development Office.

We remain connected with our YoSA alumni students as they continue their journeys in science as best they can in the current environmentNow more than ever we need a diverse community of scientists to address the global challenges we face. 

Thank you for helping us support young African scientists to achieve their potential in changing the world.
