Grants of up to $10,000 to International and Israel scholars or graduate students for research to advance the understanding of the prehistoric time in Israel. Funding may be used for certain travel costs, field work, and laboratory studies, as well as covering specialist analyses such as radiocarbon dating, palynology, etc.

The Foundation is seeking to aid scholars in research concerning the Paleolithic and Neolithic prehistory of Israel, as well as studies in adjunct fields of research, including paleoanthropology, Quaternary geology, palynology, faunal and ethnobotanical analyses, and so forth, as long as they are limited to the Pleistocene and Holocene of Israel up to ca. 7,000 years BP.

The allocated funds for Israeli scholars will be sent either to a university, the Israel Exploration Society, or the Israel Prehistoric Society. These institutions will be responsible for the accounting.

Category A: Up to $10,000
Category B: Up to $5,000

The Foundation will consider support of long-term projects for up to three years, but the continuation of the funding will be subject to annual review and the receipt of satisfactory interim reports.

Excavation applications will be granted only up to one or two years, to provide seed money, so that the applicants will be able to show preliminary results while applying to other funding agencies.

Category A: Post-doctoral scholars of various ranks affiliated with universities or other recognized institutions such as museums or research institutions.

Category B: Graduate students, including those who participate in MA or PhD programs. The name and signature of the student's principal advisor should be included in the application.

CARE generally will not cover travel expenses to attend international meetings, unless they are devoted largely, or entirely, to Near Eastern prehistory and, even for such meetings, CARE can only cover travel costs when its resources permit.

CARE does not support conferences and workshops, and it also does not fund university tuition and fees for graduate study.

All applicants should be explicit about the readiness of each expert mentioned in the application. Accordingly, include a letter in the application (or an e-mail message) from the experts indicating their agreement to take part in the project.

Precise itemized prices have to be given in the application indicating the specific kinds of expenses that will be made and/or the materials that will be purchased with Foundation funds.
