Grant Description
Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International university professors to conduct research, teach courses, lead seminars, and establish academic connections with faculty members at a university in Israel. The exact breakdown of activities funded by the fellowship will be mutually agreed upon by the professor and the academic sponsor. The post-doctoral training will take place at the Hebrew University and candidates must be sponsored by a faculty member.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
For Visiting Professors:
1. You must have an academic sponsor.
2. You must be a Full or an Associate professor.
3. Visiting Professorships are only awarded to candidates who apply from Universities outside of Israel.
4. Visiting Professors who have been awarded a Fellowship in the past may reapply for another providing at least 3 academic years have elapsed between applications. In other words, a Visiting Professor, who has been awarded a Fellowship for 2020-21, for example, may apply again for the academic year 2024-25.

The Hebrew University does not offer Fellowships to students studying for a Masters Degree Program.

Pre-Application Information
Visiting Professorships Deadline: November 30th, 2023.

Academic Sponsors: In the case of Visiting Professors, the Trust will submit a request to the sponsor for the payment of the 20% mentioned. Prospective candidates must establish contact with the relevant Faculty or Department at the Hebrew University, and ensure that there is a Faculty member willing to sponsor the application. Applications will not be processed without a sponsor.

Fellowships may not be deferred from one year to the next.
