(TWAS) encourages the organization of high level international and regional scientific activities in developing countries by offering financial assistance to the organizers of conferences, workshops, symposia and special meetings held in these countries.
Grants are offered for meetings in the following fields of natural sciences: agricultural, biological, chemical, engineering, geological and medical sciences.
The support is provided as travel grants for principal speakers from abroad and/or participants from developing countries other than the country where the meeting is held.
The amount provided normally does not exceed US$3,000. TWAS only considers applications made by organizers of international and regional scientific meetings in developing countries – it does not provide support to individual scientists.
The deadlines for receipt of applications are June 1 for meetings to be held during (January - June) of the following year or December 1 for meetings to be held during (July - December) of the following year.
