The Israel Institute, through its Public Discourse Events Program, co-sponsors and provides grants for academic conferences, lectures or lecture series, and workshops devoted to Israel Studies and the study of the modern state of Israel. We support public events of various formats and on a wide variety of topics including, but not limited to, modern Israeli history, sociology, politics, economics, law, and environment.
Grant awards are up to $5,000, and the application deadlines for this program are November 1, 2017 and August 1, 2018.
Grants can be provided for specific conference projects only; they cannot be offered as general support. Public discourse events to be funded must be of limited duration, have a clearly defined goal pertaining to Israel Studies or the study of modern Israel, and, as a general rule, must be carried out within the applicable academic year.
Accredited higher education institutions are invited to apply for this grant as well as independent think tanks or research institutions.
To be considered for a conference and/or workshop grant, please apply using our online application system. The online application requires a written proposal, containing multiple elements.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR FULL NAME IS ON ALL DOCUMENTS YOU UPLOAD.
