TWAS offers financial assistance to the organizers of international and regional scientific conferences, workshops, symposia and special meetings in the developing world.
TWAS funds several programmes that provide grants to researchers in some developing countries for specialized equipment, consumable supplies and Master of Science students. The grant money goes to individual scientists and research groups.
TWAS has long recognized that prizes and awards provide an incentive for scientists to do their best work, while winning global recognition. They range from the TWAS-Lenovo Science Prize, which celebrates the very best research in the South, to prizes awarded to early-career scientists already making impressive contributions to their field.
From 2018 all applications can only be submitted via the online portal once the call is open.
Please use the "Apply now" button at the bottom of each programme page to start your application once the call is open.

Applicants are encouraged to apply for the preliminary acceptance letter as early as possible, even before the opening date of the call. Keeping in mind that only Acceptance letters dated the same year as the year of application are eligible.
