Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Application Deadline: August 1, 2018

The Fulbright Program, in partnership with the Israel Institute, provides grants to American scholars who seek post-doctoral fellowships at Israeli universities in the field of Israel Studies. The grants are open to American researchers in all academic disciplines who study modern Israel.


  • Fulbright-Israel Institute Post-Doctoral Fellowship applicants must have dissertations about modern Israel, plan to maintain Israel as their research focus in the future, have unfunded or under-funded invitations from elite Israeli universities, and have completed their doctorate no earlier than three years before the Fellowship begins.
  • Strong applications will demonstrate an interest in and a long-term commitment to studying modern Israel and securing tenure-track university positions in the United States. Promising candidates will have juried conference papers in English at national or international scholarly conventions and the ability to publish books or articles in peer-reviewed publications in English.
  • Scholars who have already begun post-doctoral research activities in Israel prior to the start of the fellowship and candidates who hold tenure-track positions are not eligible for the program. Please note that this is a selective program and the United States-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF) and Israel Institute do not guarantee placement to those who apply.


  • Applicants must have a letter of invitation from an accredited Israeli university at the time an application is filed. Each candidate should try to arrange his/her institutional affiliations in Israel independently, including development of the program of work for the proposed visit through contacts with possible host institutions.
