In an effort to enhance the quality of courses, instruction, and research in Jewish Studies at universities throughout the world, a Visiting Fellowship program has been created by Yad Hanadiv and the Beracha Foundation, together with the National Library of Israel.
Fellowships are granted each year to scholars of Jewish Studies who hold non-tenured university positions (or will receive tenure after September 2017). Fellows will spend the academic year in Israel pursuing their own research while also working with a senior scholar in their field. The Fellowship for 2017/18 will be in the sum of ILS 130,000 with an additional ILS 10,500 per accompanying family member. Fellows are required to confirm that upon completion of the fellowship they will resume teaching Jewish Studies at a university outside Israel.
The deadline for receipt of applications is 31 January 2017.
