Fellowships to Israel young scholars in all fields of study to teach and research at eligible institutions of higher education. The purpose of the program is to offer academic appointments to researchers, as well as funding towards research projects in their field of interest. These fellowships will enable the best and brightest researchers to be integrated into the university system as faculty members in their first full-time academic appointments, in any of the following academic ranks: "Lecturers," "Senior Lecturers," "Associate Professors." Funding is intended to cover salary and research-related expenses over a three-year period.

The Azrieli Foundation selects Azrieli Faculty Fellows according to a highly competitive selection process. The process is focused on academic and research excellence without regard to institutional affiliations, race, religion, gender, ethnicity, or age. Candidates are assessed on their potential to make cutting-edge contributions to their respective fields. Aspects of personal merit and leadership abilities are also taken into consideration.

In keeping with its core values, the Program nurtures interdisciplinary and cross-cultural exchange, leadership training, community engagement, professional mentorship, and a growing alumni network. Azrieli Fellows are a community of outstanding scientists and scholars who have the unique potential to perform groundbreaking research, alongside an intellectual curiosity that transcends their field of study.

Candidates who have received their PhD no later than seven years ago, and hold an appointment to their first tenure-track position, may be nominated by one of the following academic institutions: Bar-Ilan University, Ben-Gurion University, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Tel Aviv University, University of Haifa, Weizmann Institute of Science.

The Azrieli Faculty Fellow will receive a salary (including benefits) consistent with the remuneration and benefits of faculty of the rank of "Lecturer" or "Senior Lecturer," "Associate Professor," or other equivalent ranks, as per the position the University has offered the Fellow.

In addition to salary, the Azrieli Faculty Fellow will receive a research grant. The research grant may be used for equipment and general research needs. The university is expected to provide all the necessary conditions for carrying out research.
