Fulbright Israel Post-Doctoral Fellowships for American Researchers in All Academic Disciplines

The United States-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF), the Fulbright commission for Israel, offers 8 fellowships to American post-doctoral researchers in support of work to be carried out at Israeli universities during the course of the 2014/2015-2015/2016 academic years.
The US Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program is open to candidates in all academic disciplines.
Program grants total $40,000, $20,000 per academic year.
Program fellows must be accepted as post-doctoral researchers by Israeli host institutions, which agree to provide them with a standard post-doctoral grant, which they will receive in addition to their Fulbright Fellowship. Thus, the total financial support received by Program Fellows is likely to be in the range of at least $35,000-$40,000 per year.
