Grant Description
Grants to USA and Canada faculty members at IHEs to create and teach undergraduate courses on the topic of the State of Israel. Funding is intended to support activities related to course development and instruction, including but not limited to research, travel, and language improvement.

The Israel Institute offers Faculty Development Grants to tenure-line faculty members in the United States and Canada who want to add Israel-focused courses to their teaching portfolios.

The purpose of this program is to provide financial resources for faculty members at American and Canadian universities who need such resources to deepen their knowledge of Israel.

Faculty Development Grants enable scholars to conduct research, travel to Israel, hone language skills, or pursue any other activity that would be conducive to developing and teaching courses about modern Israel.

Proposed courses may be in any discipline, but must be Israel-focused, with at least sixty percent of the topics and readings being about modern Israel.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Faculty Development Grants are available for tenured and tenure-track faculty in the United States and Canada who want to add new full-term, three-credit, undergraduate-level courses about modern Israel to their regular rotations.

Pre-Application Information
Deadline: February 13, 2024

Awards are contingent upon a letter from a dean or department chair certifying that the faculty member will teach the new Israel-focused course as part of a regular teaching rotation (not less frequently than once every two years).

Estimated Size of Grant
Grant awards are $10,000.
