The Minerva Fellowship Program (funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research) enables German and Israeli scientists and researchers
to spend longer-term research residencies at institutions in the respective other country from six to maximal thirty-six months (PhD-students) or from
six to twenty-four months (post docs). To date, more than 1500 Minerva Fellowships have been awarded to German and Israeli scientists and researchers.
Some seventy scientists receive fellowships each year. Scientists with tenure are not eligible to apply.
