The United States-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF), the Fulbright commission for Israel, wishes to inform the members of the Israel Endocrine Society that it is currently offering 8 Fulbright Fellowships, each valued at $40,000 ($20,000 per year X 2 years), in support of American post-doctoral fellows’ research in Israel in the period2015/2016-2016/2017.
To qualify for Fulbright support, each candidate must be accepted as a post-doc by an Israeli host institution, which agrees to provide him/her with at least its standard fellowship. Fulbright fellowships complement this basic host institution funding.
The application deadline for 2015/2016-2016/2017 Fellowships is 1 August, 2014.
Adding Fulbright funding to the regular post-doctoral stipends available from Israeli host universities can help make the possibility of training in Israel economically viable, as well as scientifically attractive.
Thus, USIEF urges members of the Society to inform their American colleagues of the availability of Fulbright funding for US post-doc’s, and to ask them to pass on this information to young researchers working under their direction.
