The Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD) ,in collaporation with the World Academy of Sciences TWAS, is offering fellowships for women who have completed their PhDs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects and are employed at an academic or scientific research institute in a science and technology lagging country. Early Career fellows will be supported to continue their research at an international level while based at their home institutes, and to build up research groups that will attract international visitors.

  • The institution where the research project will be carried out must be in one of the listed STLCs.

  • Applicants must provide evidence that they will receive a salary from their university/research institute for the duration of the two-year fellowship.

Benefits:-

  • TWAS provides an award of up to USD 50,000.
