The Israel Institute offers fellowships for up to two years to Ph.D. candidates, in advanced stages of their degrees, who are conducting research on modern Israel. We seek high-caliber students who are enrolled at top-ranked programs and are interested in an academic career in Israel Studies outside of Israel.
Our Doctoral Fellowships are open to Ph.D. candidates who have completed their coursework, passed their comprehensive exams, are researching and writing dissertations on an Israel-focused topic or incorporating Israel as a case study, and are planning a career in Israel Studies outside of Israel.
Israel Institute Doctoral Fellowships provide funding, of up to $10,000 per year, for students at American universities, and up to $15,000 per year for students at Israeli, European, and Asian universities. Fellowships are awarded for up to two years.
Please note that this is a selective program and the Israel Institute does not guarantee placement to those who apply.
