ASSAf About

The AU-TWAS award scheme aims to recognise and reward talented young scientists in Africa. The AU-TWAS Prize for Young Scientists in South Africa is managed by ASSAf, on behalf of its partners, the African Union Commission (AUC), The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) and the Department of Science and Technology (DST).

Through this award, the AU and TWAS jointly recognise and reward outstanding young scientists in South Africa. The recipients should be under the age of 40, living and working in South Africa, and have a record of research publications in internationally recognised science journals.
