Grants of $4,000 to USA and Israel PhD candidates to carry out short-term scientific research in the other country. Students are encouraged to apply for thesis-supporting research that requires facilities or expertise not available in their country. Applications will be evaluated on the basis of their merit in light of the overall aim of the program, and the qualifications of the applicants. The grant will be awarded through the grantee's institute.

As guiding principles, support will be awarded to applications that meet the following criteria:

-The applicant is a young American or Israeli researcher, and the visit is to the other country.

-The research is in an accredited higher education or scientific institution (including hospitals).

-The applicant's research is in any of the scientific fields supported by the BSF ( the full list is on the BSF website), regardless of the split program.

-The purpose of the trip is limited to the use of facilities, or acquiring expertise not available in the applicant's home country.

In 2017, the program will have two calls and each will support 10 trips.

Grants will be $4,000 each.

Each trip will be for a maximum length of 2 months.

Applicants must be U.S. or Israeli citizens.

The applicant, rather than his thesis advisor, must write the application.

Applicants must be conducting supervised research towards a PhD in an accredited higher education institution, or in a nonprofit research institution (government or other, including hospitals).

Submitting an application before the PhD research program/plan is formally approved by the university is not recommended.

Students in their last year of PhD studies are not eligible to submit applications to the program.

The BSF will only accept applications that are in the scientific fields it supports in its regular research grant program, regardless of the split program.

Applicants must be 35 years old or younger.

Israeli and American students doing research in the other country are not eligible to apply.

A student who was previously awarded a grant in this program is not allowed to submit again.

Both Israeli and American students must submit through the university from which they will graduate. Students who are doing their research at a hospital or other research institution must also submit their applications through the university from which they will graduate.

As each institution may submit no more than 5 applications for their students, applicants should contact the university to determine the latest date applications

Applications to the Prof. R. Rahamimoff Travel Grants program must reach the BSF office no later than Tuesday, April 27, 2017 at 5:00 PM (Israel time, 10:00 AM EST).

Announcements of final award decisions will be made on the BSF website by mid-June 2017.
