Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS) Fellowships

Overview

The Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS) is promoting various fellowship programmes for PhD, Postdoctoral and Advanced Research. These schemes represent a great opportunity for scientists and researchers who may be interested in enhancing their scientific knowledge. Thus, we are writing to you to request whether you could possibly assist us in disseminating information about these grants to a wider audience.

The fellowships are overseen jointly by TWAS and various host institutes in countries in the South, including Brazil, Pakistan, China and India and they allow scientists from developing countries to study or do research in other developing countries and then to return home to continue their careers.

TWAS, the academy of sciences for the developing world, is now accepting applications for its postgraduate, postdoctoral, visiting scholars and advanced research fellowship programmes.

The fellowships are offered to scientists from developing countries and are tenable at centres of excellence in various countries in the South, including Brazil, China, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan and Thailand.
Eligible fields include: agricultural and biological sciences, medical and health sciences, chemistry, engineering, astronomy, space and earth sciences, mathematics and physics.


Applicants should be aware that they can apply for ONLY ONE of the programmes listed on this page per year. All fellowship programmes offered by TWAS and OWSDW (formerly TWOWS) are mutually exclusive.

Acceptance letters for 2011 applications must show the starting date as 2012 since successful candidates can only start their fellowships in the year following the application.
