TWAS-UNESCO Associateship Scheme

Dear Scientist,

The TWAS-UNESCO Associateship Scheme enables competent researchers
from the developing countries to visit participating centres of excellence in the South for research collaboration. An associate is appointed for three years during which s/he can visit a selected centre twice for 2-3 months each time. Over 100 centres participate in the scheme.

TWAS provides travel support for the associates and a contribution towards subsistence costs up to USD300 per month while living expenses are covered by the host centres.

Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent degree. Special consideration is given to scientists from isolated institutions in developing countries. Women scientists are especially encouraged to apply.

Attached please find the application form. More information, including the list of participating centres, can be found at:

Looking forward to receiving your application.

Best wishes,
Fabrizia Niscio (Ms.)
TWAS Associateship Office
