BSF is announcing the availability of funds for short scientific trips by young American or Israeli scientists to the other country. In 2015 the program will have two calls and each will support 10 trips. Grants will be $4,000 each. The program is open to PhD students doing research that requires facilities or expertise that are not available in their home countries. The deadline for the 1st call for 2015 is May 14, 2015.
(1) The new NSF Secure and Trusthworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) solicitation has been released. Note that Frontiers (up to $10M) have been replaced by Large (up to $3M) proposals. The submission deadlines are:
- Small: January 14, 2015
- Medium: November 10, 2014
- Large: November 20, 2014
- Education: December 19, 2014
(2) NSF and the US-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF) have developed a collaboration arrangement whereby US researchers may receive funding from the NSF and collaborating Israeli researchers may receive funding from the BSF. Proposals may be submitted to the SaTC Small category, with the identical proposal submitted to BSF to support Israeli collaborators. Proposals will be reviewed by NSF; those selected for funding will have separate agreements with NSF (for US researchers) and BSF (for Israeli researchers).
