- Young Investigator Grant Program: $25,000 per year.
- Drug Abuse Research Grant in Memory of Steven Smith, Clinical Research Grant in Memory of Haim and Regina Rabinowitz, The Dylan Tauber Anxiety Disorders and OCD Grant: Financial support will be similar to that of regular Young Investigator Grants.

Term of Contract:

Applications for funding can be made for one or two years, although formal approval of a grant is given for only one year. Researchers applying for financial support for a second year must submit a follow-up application, as stipulated in the official application forms, including a scientific report on the progress of the research, up until April 30 of each year. Recipients of a Young Investigator Grant may apply for another two-year grant to be activated at the conclusion of their grant period. This application will compete with those applying for new awards.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applications for funding may be submitted by researchers associated with institutions of higher learning, accredited research institutes, and hospitals. Preference will be given to young researchers, i.e. holders of a Ph.D. or M.D degree with appointments at the level of Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (up to 3 years after the initial Senior Lecturer rank appointment).

Only in extremely exceptional cases will support be granted to more senior staff, e.g. researchers from other fields who have changed their focus to psychobiology and lack other sources of financial support.

Pre-Application Information:

Deadline for submission: May 10, 2021

Each application should be submitted by e-mail, along with two printed copies in English, and CD of the application by mail.

A research grant will be approved on condition that the researcher does not leave Israel for a period of more than four months during the year of his research. In the event that a researcher wishes to travel abroad for longer, he or she must inform the Institute of his or her intentions, and the grant will be frozen during the period that he or she is abroad.

The regular Young Investigator application form (see Supporting Documents below) should be used for all grants, with an attached letter stating that the application is for one of the specific grants.
