    Statistics

    Since its onset in 2012, the NSF-BSF collaboration has grown rapidly and in 2017/18 included 16 programs, most of them on a divisional level.

    Below is a statistical table of the NSF-BSF programs showing the number of submissions (full proposals only, excluding pre-proposals) and the success rates. Quite often, the success rates of the joint U.S.-Israel applications are higher than the overall success rates in the same programs.
