Each year, the BSF offers grants in several scientific programs:

Regular research grants
Open to all scientists from Israel and the USA who would like to conduct joint research in a variety of scientific research. Please verify your eligibility before submitting. Read more about the program here.

Start-up research grants
Open to American and Israeli scientists who are in the initial stages of their independent careers. Find more details here.

Transformative Science Research grants (Suspended)
A new program in 'Transformative Science' was launched in 2010. This is a small program of up to 2 awards annually that will receive larger grants than in our regular program. To be awarded a grant, the program must be 'transformative'. The BSF has adopted the NSF definition for 'Transformative Science', which is: Research driven by ideas that have the potential to radically change our understanding of an important scientific concept, or lead to the creation of a new paradigm, or a new field of science. Such research is characterized by its challenge to current understanding or by its pathways to new frontiers. Find more details here.

BSF-NSF Joint Funding Opportunities
Starting in 2012, the BSF launched a series of joint funding programs with the National Science Foundation (NSF), using special funds from the Council of Higher Education. Find more details here.

Prof. Rahamimoff Travel grants for young scientists
Open to American and Israeli PhD students for research related trips to the other country. Find more details here.

Workshop grants (Suspended)
Open to all American and Israeli scientists, and addressing specific topics that will change from one year to the next and will be announced in the annual Call for Proposals.  The program is on hold until further notice. Please do not approach the Foundation for support of workshops or conferences of any kind.
