Grants of up to $30,000 to Massachusetts and Israel faculty members or staff at designated universities for joint scientific research projects. Funding is intended to assist with travel costs to fund the exchange between the two teams of researchers. The fund is open to faculty from all disciplines at MIT to collaborate with Israeli faculty at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.
Priority will be given to projects that:
- Propose a balanced exchange between the MIT and Israeli participants
- Demonstrate complementarity between the MIT and Israeli teams
- Include MIT PhD students
For all funds, priority will be given to projects that:
- Are likely to make an important contribution to the field
- Are new or are entering a new phase
- Involve undergraduate and/or graduate students in a meaningful way
- Are likely to be sustainable beyond the grant period
Funding may be used to cover travel and meeting costs to facilitate international projects and collaboration.
