The Minerva Fellowship Program (*) enables German and Israeli scientists and researchers
to spend longer-term research residencies at institutions in the respective other country from six to
thirty-six months (for graduates) or from six to twenty-four months (for post docs). To
date, more than 1,500 German and Israeli scientists and researchers have been awarded a
Minerva Fellowship. Some fifty scientists receive fellowships each year. Scientists with
tenure are not eligible to apply.
(*) This program is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research.
