Prof. Rahamimoff Travel Grants for Young Scientists – Deadline May 11, 2022


BSF is announcing the availability of funds for short scientific trips by young American or Israeli scientists to the other country.

In 2022 the program will have two calls, which will each support 10 trips. Grants will be $4,000 each. This is the first CALL for 2022.

The program is open to PhD students doing research that requires facilities or expertise that are not available in their home countries.

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 (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.
  • Application is for travel that has not yet taken place.
  • Resubmission may sometime be possible after 12 months and with pre approval by the BSF office.

Additional information about the Prof. R. Rahamimoff program can be found at:, and must be submitted using the form and the instructions that can be downloaded from the BSF website.

Applications that do not follow the instructions on the BSF website will not be processed.
