Fellowships to USA research scientists affiliated with nonprofit organizations, universities, and government agencies to carry out agricultural research at an Israeli institution.

Scientists will engage in one or more of the following: 

  • Participate in a joint short research endeavor
  • Introduce innovative methods and techniques in the Israeli host's lab
  • Interact with students in the host’s lab or other Israeli laboratories to support and encourage their research endeavors
  • Give lecture series
  • Participate in seminars, workshops and other exchanges of scientific knowledge with Israeli counterparts in departments and institutions outside those of the host’s lab

The primary criteria considered are the credentials of the fellow and his ability to introduce innovative scientific methods and ideas to the host lab, the scientific merit and innovation of the proposed work, its relevance to agriculture, the cooperation in the proposed and future research, and the benefit that can be derived from the candidate's interaction with the Israeli scientific community.
