Award Activity

Fulbright Israel plans to award up to eight fellowships to senior faculty members, senior professionals, or to accomplished artists or writers for visits to Israeli institutions of higher education to be carried out during the 2022/23 academic year. The fellowship is open to all fields of study. Scholars’ proposed activities may include research, lecturing, or a combination of lecturing and research.

Per Fulbright Israel policy, candidates should take into account that host institutions are obliged to make a financial contribution of $2,000 to the United States-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF), also known as Fulbright Israel, which is credited towards the overall grant benefits. The matter of this mandatory contribution should be raised in preliminary discussions with potential hosts and the commitment to provide the funds should be included in the letter of invitation.

Scholars selected for this award can choose to:
  • Advise and/or mentor students
  • Assist in faculty, curriculum, and/or program development
  • Conduct a professional and/or artistic project
