The duration of the fellowship is for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year. In specific fields, where the accepted period for postdoctoral research is longer than two years, the fellowship may be extended beyond two years, following review of the situation and agreement by the Foundation.
The fellowship is for research done at Israeli universities. One of the central goals of our fellowship program is to establish strong ties with the Israeli academic community and society. We therefore offer a full 12-month fellowship intended for research done in Israel throughout this period. If research collaborations require a Fellow to be away from Israel for some time, the period away from Israel should be no longer than 25% of the fellowship period. It is expected that the major and significant portion of research be done in Israel.
