Fulbright_logo-300x96The United States-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF), plans to award 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).

The program grants a total of $70,000 ($35,000 for each academic year for two years). The Fellowship Program is open to candidates in all academic disciplines.

Fulbright postdoctoral fellows must hold official postdoctoral fellow status at their host institutions in Israel, including access to campus resources. Additionally, host institutions will be asked to provide Fulbright postdoctoral fellows a grant no smaller than their own standard institutional postdoctoral award, a description of which should be included in the letter of invitation submitted with the Fulbright application.

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, as well as their primary activities.

The application deadline is August 1, 2018. For more information, visit the USIEF website.
