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. Almost 300 centres participate in the scheme.
TWAS provides travel support for the associates and a contribution towards incidental local expenses up to USD300 per month while living expenses are covered by the host centres.
Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent degree and include an invitation letter from the host centre. 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 and the lists of participating centres (the CONICET list is for centres located in Argentina).
