Plans for the 65th London International Youth Science Forum are well underway and a number of high profile speakers have been secured including Nobel Prize Winner Sir Gregory Winter. The Forum will take place between 24th July and 7th August 2024.

We continue to work with multiple partners African partners to expand the reach of our scholarship programme and are undertaking student selection interviews early in 2024. We are also planning to bring an African based trustee on to our board.

Our website has been updated with testimonials from our 2023 scholarship students about their time at the Forum (https://yosa.org.uk/student-testimonials) including

Karen from Kenya: “I enjoyed conversing and forming networks with well accomplished people who were well-versed when it came to offering socio-economic advice as a person of colour stepping into the global ranks, scientific advice in my future endeavors, and even how to take advantage of every last drop of the resources available to me.”

Priscilla from South Africa: “The London International Youth Science Forum was the best thing that ever happened to me. Building relationships with other students from all over the world and learning about their cultures, traditions and learning systems of their countries was the best thing in this Forum and this really supported this year’s LIYSF theme, “SCIENCE FOR UNITY”. The best part is that I have now discovered my career path and I am willing to work hard for it
