Funded TWAS-UNESCO Associateship Scheme has opened the application. In collaboration with UNESCO and a number of centers of excellence in the South, TWAS has instituted a Joint Associateship Scheme to enable competent researchers from the South to visit these centers regularly. An associate is appointed for three years during which he/she can visit a Centre twice for research collaboration. Almost 300 centers have been selected to participate in the Scheme. TWAS provides travel support for the associates and a contribution towards subsistence costs up to USD300.00 per month while living expenses are covered by the host centers.

Appointments have a fixed duration of three years. During this time, the associate is entitled to visit the host center twice, for a period of 2 to 3 months each time. Subject to the availability of funds, the appointment may be renewed for a further 3-year term.

The Associateship covers the associate’s travel expenses and a monthly contribution of USD300 towards incidental local expenses. The host center covers accommodation and food and provides the research facilities.

Applications for TWAS Associateships should include:

  • the completed application form (see below);
  • a recent invitation letter – on the host institution’s letterhead paper – from one of the Institutions listed in the two files at the end of this page. It should contain the proposed time of the visits (two to three months for each visit) and should refer to the proposed cooperation. It should be made evident that the applicant and the proposed host have been in contact regarding the scientific work to be done during the visit and that the conditions for conducting the work have been agreed in terms of the timing of the visit and the facilities available;
  • the applicant’s curriculum vitae, and
  • the applicant’s full list of publications.
  • In addition, letters of recommendation must be submitted separately to TWAS by two referees, one of whom should be from an expert from another country.
