About the Minerva Fellowship Programme

The Minerva Fellowship Programme enables Israeli and German scientists to complete a research residency at institutions in the respective other country. Minerva Fellowships are not only intended to promote research but also to strengthen the cultural and scientific exchange between Germany and Israel. Younger scientists (graduates and post docs) get the possibility to further their scientific background while they conduct a research project at their host institution in Israel or Germany. The Minerva Fellowship Programme is being funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research. To date, more than 1700 Minerva Fellowships have been awarded to German and Israeli researchers since the start of the programme in 1973.
