UNESCO-TWAS Associateship scheme
Email from Fabrizia Niscio (Ms.)
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.
