The International Geoscience Programme (IGCP) is a joint endeavor of UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) and IUGS (International Union of Geological Sciences), within the International Geoscience and Geoparks Programme of UNESCO (IGGP).
The primary aims of IGCP are to facilitate international collaboration amongst scientists from around the world in research on geological problems, particularly between those individuals from more industrialized and those from developing countries. Through long-term joint research efforts, meetings, field trips, and workshops, IGCP aims to promote the use of geosciences in global issues including, but not limited to, sustainable development, the health and safety of humanity and the reduction of the adverse effects of natural disasters and resource extraction.
The IGCP Young Scientist Project aims at fostering international cooperation between prospective young scientists from developing and developed countries early in their careers. It is expected that this will recruit and train young scientists to establish future cooperative projects.

- Project proposals may be submitted by individuals or groups
- Proposers should be within 10 years of their PhD
- Proposers should provide a CV including a full publication list, which should contain at least one international publication in their field.
- Proposers need to demonstrate an affiliation to a research institute, university, geological survey or equivalent organization for the duration of the project.
- Projects may but do not need to be linked to an existing IGCP project.
- The project should involve at least three young scientists from a minimum of two countries. The principal proposer must be from a developing country.
- Proposers are encouraged (but not required) to find an experienced scientist as advisor to help guiding the project, however the number of advisors should be limited to 1 or 2 and should definitely not be equal or exceed the number of young scientist project leaders.
- IGCP funds cannot be used for items such as data gathering (e.g., field and laboratory expenses)
