Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program Now Accepting Applications

The Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program supports future generations of leaders in science, technology, engineering and math. Zuckerman provides scholarships for postdoctoral trainees from premier universities in the United States to do research at one of seven Israeli universities. Once the postdocs complete their research in Israel, many of them are expected to accept faculty positions at top North American universities, strengthening the US-Israel partnership by building on long-lasting relationships of mutual collaboration. In addition, the program provides support to Israeli PhD graduates who have been accepted to a postdoctoral program with a stipend at an American university, thus creating a cycle of excellence.

Zuckerman Scholars enjoy unique programming and activities specially organized for them by the host universities, such as touring, educational experiences, and social programs. Candidates for the program are assessed based on their academic and research achievements, as well as on personal merit and leadership qualities, without regard to race, religion, gender, ethnicity, or age.
