Grants and Fellowships

Global Senior Scholar Exchange Program

Toxicologists who are in Developing Countries may apply for the Global Senior Scholar Exchange Program. SOT sponsors specific collaborations between selected mid-career to senior Scholars from academic institutions in developing countries and SOT Member Hosts from established academic, government, and industry toxicology programs worldwide. The Scholar will attend the 2017 Annual Meeting to present work and establish scientific networks and then spend up to four weeks at the Host’s institution. The goal is to improve toxicology education and training at the Scholar’s university. Hosts are recruited after selection of the Scholars to match toxicology interests. Scholar applications are due June 15, 2016. The host application deadline will be September 15, 2016.

International ToxScholar Outreach Grants

Applications are due each year on May 1st and October 9th, for International ToxScholar Grants. Funding of up to $1,250 is available from SOT for toxicologists to visit institutions in Developing Countries to expand awareness of toxicology and promote toxicology careers through interaction of toxicologists with undergraduate and graduate students. A letter from the contact at the institution to be visited is required. Examples of previously funded visits are found on the International ToxScholar Grants web page.

Associateships—The Academy of Sciences for the Developing World

In collaboration with UNESCO and a number of centres of excellence in the South, TWAS has instituted a Joint Associateship Scheme to enable competent researchers from the South to visit these centres regularly. An associate is appointed for three years during which he/she can visit a Centre twice for research collaboration. Over 100 centres have been selected to participate in the Scheme. TWAS provides travel support for the associates and a contribution towards subsistence costs up to US $300.00 per month while living expenses are covered by the host centres.

Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent degree. The selection of associates is highly competitive; appointments are made on the basis of merit. Special consideration is given to scientists from isolated institutions in developing countries.

Appointments have a fixed duration of three years. During this time, the associate is entitled to visit the host centre twice, for a period of 2 to 3 months each time. Subject to the availability of funds, the appointment may be renewed for a further 3-year term.

The Associateship covers the associate’s travel expenses and a monthly contribution of US $300 towards incidental local expenses. The host centre covers accommodation and food, and provides the research facilities.

Applications for TWAS Associateships should include:

  • completed application form (see below);
  • curriculum vitae
  • applicant’s full list of publications.
  • letters of recommendation must be submitted separately to TWAS by two referees, one of whom should be an expert from another country.
