  • Where should I send the application to?

    Send it by email attachment to

  • What is the best time window to submit my application?

    The BSF avoids funding Ph.D. students near the end of their thesis work, since we expect that the trip will not contribute much to their research. On the other hand, students in the very early stage of their Ph.D. work, may not be clear yet on the research direction, and on their needs. Exception to it is the case of a student who continues his Ph.D. studies at the same lab he did his MSc, and his work is the extension of his previous work. In this case, early application makes sense and is treated accordingly. The classical application is at the second, or third year of the Ph.D. studies.

  • I was turned down, can I resubmit in a future round?

    If your application was turned down because the panel felt that it was too early, or your personal record was not competitive, but since then you progressed (and may have published more), you may resubmit. Before embarking on a new application, it is advisable to contact Dr. Rachel Haring by phone or mail (+972-2-5828239;, and discuss with her your situation.
