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.
