The World Academy of Sciences (UNESCO-TWAS) and the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) are seeking nominations for the Young Refugee and Displaced Scientists Programme. The deadline for receiving applications is 27 February 2023 (11.59 p.m., Rome time).

The Programme aims at supporting talented young scientists up to around 40 years of age from one of the IsDB member countries, who are currently refugees or displaced.

Candidates selected will be elected as TWAS Young Affiliates. The affiliateship status lasts for six years; in addition, the new Young Affiliates will be granted membership to the prestigious TWAS Young Affiliates Network (TYAN).

During their six-year tenure Young Affiliates are, among other things, invited to attend the TWAS General Meetings, conferences and panels, and may receive invitations to the regional meetings of TWAS Fellows organized by the Regional Partners.  As members of TYAN, affiliates are invited to actively contribute to the Network, which offers access to many competitive opportunities such as the TYAN Collaborative Grants Awards, TYAN International Thematic Workshops, and the newly established TYAN Outreach Programme. Young Affiliates are also eligible for TWAS Awards. For details on the TWAS Young Affiliates Programme, visit: http://tyan.twas.org/
