Thus, to be eligible for a Fulbright fellowship beginning in 2019, candidates must have received their Ph.D. degrees no earlier than April 2016 in order to remain eligible as a postdoctoral researcher for the duration of the Fellowship. Additionally, applicants must receive their Ph.D. no later than August 2019.
Candidates must be planning to begin a period of postdoctoral research at an accredited institution of higher education in Israel during the course of the 2019-20 academic year. Individuals who have already begun postdoctoral research activities in Israel prior to the 2019-20 academic year are not eligible. Holders of tenure track positions are also not eligible to apply.
