Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships of 9,000 NIS per month for up to four years to Israel and Germany post-doctoral scholars working in all social sciences and humanities fields. For the fellowships, which will take place in Jerusalem, the Funding Source is seeking creative humanists and social scientists with broad intellectual horizons. No connection of the subject matter to Jewish studies or Israel is required. An imaginative proposal proving the applicant’s ability to carry out cutting-edge research in her or his field is the most important part of the application.

The fellows are encouraged to move to Jerusalem and those who do receive an additional housing subsidy that can be used either for apartments in the university’s Student Village (on campus) or to help with rental costs elsewhere in town. Non-Israeli fellows who move to Jerusalem with their family are eligible for additional support.

Fellows have the opportunity to pursue their individual research under optimal conditions for the term of their fellowship and are expected to become part of the vibrant scholarly community in Jerusalem, reflecting the widest possible disciplinary spectrum in the Humanities and the Social Sciences and embodying a spirit of shared intellectual adventure. They are obliged to participate in biweekly colloquia, workshops, lectures, study excursions, and other cultural and academic activities of the MBSF. Discussions in the Martin Buber Society take place in English (not in Hebrew or German).
