Una excelente oportunidad: TWAS-UNESCO Associateship Scheme


Dear OWSD network,

Applications are now being accepted for the TWAS-UNESCO Associateship scheme.

This scheme enables competent researchers from 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. Nearly 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. Only centres listed here can be chosen as host centres. Special consideration is given to scientists from isolated institutions in developing countries. Women scientists are especially encouraged to apply.


The deadline for applications for this scheme is 1 December 2020.

Applications can only be accepted via the TWAS online forms system. Please go to https://twas.org/opportunity/twas-unesco-associateship-scheme and apply by clicking on the button at the end of the page.


Kind regards,
