Fellowships for young scientists

Fellowships for young scientists

TWAS offers fellowships to young scientists in developing countries to enable them to spend between three and 12 months at a research institution in a developing country other than their own. Deadline for applications: 1 October.

The fellowships are for research and advanced training. The purpose of these fellowships is to enhance the research capacity of promising scientists, especially those at the beginning of their research career, helping them to foster linkages for further collaboration.

They are offered to young scientists holding at least an MSc or equivalent degree.

Eligible applicants for the fellowships are young scientists working in any area of natural sciences who are citizens of a developing country and are employed by a research institution in a developing country.

There is no age limit. However, preference is given to young scientists at the beginning of their research career and those working in Least Developed Countries.

Part 1

of the application form should be completed by the applicant and the head of the applicant's HOME institution, and sent to the TWAS secretariat.

Part 2

must be sent by the applicant to the head of the institution he/she intends to visit, together with a copy of Part 1 (for information).
