Nirit & Michael Shaoul Fellows Nominations
Guidelines for submitting candidates in the framework of
The Nirit and Michael Shaoul Fund for Visiting Scholars and Fellows
There are several frameworks for bringing visitors to the university, and the IAS framework is reserved for distinguished visitors who are recognized leaders in their academic discipline.
Nominations of Nirit & Michael Shaoul Fellows are usually made by the Faculties. Faculty members are welcome to initiate such nominations; however the nomination should be done by or with the Dean of the Faculty. The nomination file should include a nomination letter, supporting letter by the Dean, a detailed Curriculum Vitae of the candidate that clearly describes the nominee's achievements, and a list of publications. These nominations are brought to the Institute Steering Committee in its annual meeting during January each year. Final decisions are usually expected by the end of January.
The maximum funding provided for a short time visit is $5,000; the actual support will depend on the availability of funds and the expected cost of the visit.
The maximum funding for a long time visit is $15,000 with the actual support derived from the duration of the visit and its expected cost.
Host Departments / Faculties are expected to contribute part of the support required for their visitors. This contribution is not mandatory, however, in assigning priorities towards final decision, an offer of cost sharing by the Faculty will be discussed with the other criteria.
