The BSF supports bilateral, cooperative research by U.S. and Israeli scientists conducted in both countries.
The BSF Call for Proposals has been issued for this year. Last year, some 151 full proposals were submitted by teams of U.S. and Israeli scientists, and 49 were granted, increasing the overall success rate to 32.5%, well above previous years as well as the overall NSF success rate.

BSF Regular Program. Deadline for applications is November 20, 2018. The website will be opened on September 1, 2018. The regulations can be found here.

BSF program Prof. Rahamimoff Travel Grants for Young Scientists. BSF is announcing the availability of funds for short scientific trips by young American or Israeli scientists to the other country. Deadline for applications by U.S. or Israeli PhD students is November 28, 2018. Call for Proposals can be found here.
(22 grants were approved in 2018).

Japan Brain Research Cooperative Program (BRCP)
This administrative supplement program will provide funds to research projects that are currently supported by the participating NIH Institutes and Centers.
The purpose of the BRCP is to promote scientist exchange, training, and collaborations in basic, translational and clinical research between neuroscientists from the U.S. and Japan.
The U.S. entity of the BRCP supports the following activities:
  • Visit of U.S. scientists to conduct collaborative research and/or to acquire advanced research skills in Japanese institutions.
  • Joint workshops to exchange scientific information and to foster collaborations.

W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program Opportunity
The W.M. Keck Research Program seeks to benefit humanity by supporting projects in two specific areas (1) medical research and (2) science and engineering, that are distinctive and novel in their approach, question the prevailing paradigm, or have the potential to break open new territory in their field. Past grants have been awarded to major universities, independent research institutions, and medical schools to support pioneering biological and physical science research and engineering, including the development of promising new technologies, instrumentation or methodologies. Historically, grants range from $500,000 to $5 million and are typically $2million or less. Funding is awarded to universities and institutions nationwide for projects in research that:
  • Focus on basic science early in the process
  • Focus on important and emerging areas of research
  • Have the potential to develop breakthrough technologies, instrumentation or methodologies
  • Are innovative, distinctive and interdisciplinary
  • Demonstrate a high level of risk due to unconventional approaches, or by challenging the prevailing paradigm
  • Have the potential for transformative impact, such as the founding of a new field of research, the enabling of observations not previously possible, or the altered perception of a previously intractable problem
