Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships of 9,000 NIS per month for up to four years to Israel and Germany young scholars working in all social sciences and humanities fields. The fellowship will take place in Jerusalem and fellows will participate in biweekly colloquia, lectures, workshops, study excursions, and other cultural and academic activities.

Application is open for those specializing in all fields of the Humanities and the Social Sciences. The program is intended for creative humanists and social scientists with broad intellectual horizons. No connection of the subject matter to Jewish studies or Israel is required.

Each year, the Academic Committee of the Martin Buber Society of Fellows selects up to ten exceptionally gifted young scholars (up to five from Israel and five from Germany). The Fellows are asked to move to Jerusalem and stay in residence. They receive a monthly stipend of approximately 9,000 NIS and an additional housing subsidy that can be used either for apartments in the university’s Student Village (on campus) or to help with costs in apartments elsewhere in town. Non-Israeli fellows who move to Jerusalem with their family are eligible for additional support.

The Martin Buber Society of Fellows in the Humanities and Social Science at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, is a German Foundation financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Its research facility is situated at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It is aimed at creating a creative, vibrant scholarly environment for outstanding young scholars in all fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Scholars from the two countries who have completed their Ph.D. degrees within the last five years are eligible to apply, on the basis of a detailed research proposal, for generous fellowships, initially for a period of two years, but renewable for further periods thereafter upon submission of a long-term research project which will be evaluated by the Academic Committee.

The Fellows-five from Israel and five from Germany in each annual batch-are housed at the Hebrew University and work in offices in the beautifully appointed Mandel Building on the Mount Scopus campus. They have the freedom to carry out their research under optimal conditions, and take part in regular activities including bi-weekly seminars or colloquiums, periodic workshops and conferences, study trips, lectures, and social events. Senior scholars from both countries are associated with the Society as Senior Fellows and mentors.
