Grants of up to $80,000 per year to USA and Israel scientists affiliated with a research institution for collaborative research in materials sciences. Applicants are advised that US-based partners must submit their application by October 31. Proposals are welcome in the disciplines of biomaterials, condensed matter and materials theory, ceramics, condensed matter physics, electronic and photonics materials, metals and metallic nanostructure, polymers, and solid state and materials chemistry.

The size of the BSF grant to the Israelis is expected to be up to $80,000 per year for the duration of the grant.

Applications must be written jointly by an Israeli and a U.S. scientist from a U.S. research institution.

Prior to submission, the U.S. applicant is advised to contact the appropriate NSF program manager to discuss the research focus of his international project. In particular, until the NSF-BSF programs include also Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, there is considerable risk that proposals will be rejected as not being in “Materials” according to the NSF definition.

If awarded a grant, the Israeli scientist will receive a grant from the BSF, while the U.S. scientist will receive a grant from the NSF.

Full proposals should be submitted to the BSF no later than 5:00 PM (Israel time) on November 6, 2016. The NSF deadline is October 31, 2016.

The NSF accepts applications only from U.S. scientists, and submission to the NSF should be made by the U.S. PI alone (the Israeli does not appear as a formal co-PI on the application). However, in the collaborative applications, the role of the Israeli partner(s) must be described. Furthermore, it should be clearly explained why the contribution of the Israeli PI to the research project is important/essential.

Questions regarding the applicability of the proposed research for this program should be directed by the US partner to the program officer at the NSF.
