The MIT-Israel – Ben Gurion University of the Negev Seed Fund supports new collaborations between faculty and research scientists at MIT and their counterparts at the Ben Gurion University of the Negev.

Through an annual call for proposals, the fund primarily supports travel costs for exchange between a team at MIT and colleagues at Ben Gurion University. The Israeli must be identified in the proposal. Applications for up to $15,000 are recommended, maximum award is $30,000

Priority will be given to projects that:

  • propose a balanced exchange between the MIT and Israeli participants
  • demonstrate complementarity between the MIT and Israeli teams
  • Include students
