The United States-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF) and the Israel Institute plan to award one grant to an American postdoctoral scholar who seeks to pursue research at an Israeli institution of higher education in the field of Israel Studies. The grant will support programs of work in Israel for up to 20 months (two academic years). Candidates should be interested in pursuing a career in Israel Studies in the United States following their post-doctoral work.

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.
