TWAS-UNESCO Associateship Scheme 2020 for researchers from developing countries (Funded)-See Application Guide Welcome to Stevo Portal
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019
In collaboration with UNESCO and a number of centres of excellence in the South, TWAS has instituted a Joint Associateship Scheme to enable competent researchers from the South to visit these centres regularly. An associate is appointed for three years during which he/she can visit a Centre twice for research collaboration. Almost 300 centres have been selected to participate in the Scheme.
In 1994, in cooperation with UNESCO, TWAS instituted an Associateship
Scheme to help counteract the brain drain affecting many developing
countries. The programme supports regular visits by researchers from
developing countries to centres of excellence in the South. Almost 300
centres of excellence in the South have agreed to participate in the
programme. The lists of participating centres are available here (175 in Argentina and 97 in all other developing countries).
Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent degree. The selection of
associates is highly competitive; appointments are made on the basis of
merit. Special consideration is given to scientists from isolated
institutions in developing countries. Women scientists are especially
encouraged to apply.
Appointments have a fixed duration of three years. During this time, the associate is entitled to visit the host centre 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 centre covers accommodation and food, and provides the research
