Award Details
Grant Activity

The United States-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF) plans to award up to eight grants to U.S. postdoctoral scholars who seek to pursue research at Israeli institutions of higher education. Grants are open to researchers in all academic disciplines and support programs of work in Israel for up to 20 months (two academic years).

Each candidate should try to arrange his/her institutional affiliations in Israel independently, including development of the program of work for the proposed visit through contacts with possible host institutions. According to USIEF policy, Fulbright postdoctoral fellows must hold official postdoctoral fellow status at their host institutions in Israel, including access to campus resources. Proof of such letter is not required at the time of application. Applicants may seek additional funding from the host institution.

Please contact Noa Turgeman at NoaT@fulbright.org.il with any questions or assistance with identifying suitable host institutions or contacts. If you anticipate delays in obtaining the letter of invitation by thedeadline, please contact middleeastnorthafrica@iie.org for additional guidance. 

In addition to being a prestigious academic exchange program, the Fulbright Program is designed to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations and to promote international understanding and cooperation. To support this mission, Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host community, in addition to their primary activities.
