To intensify the cooperation with universities and research institutions in Israel and the Near East and to celebrate 60 years of diplomatic relations between Germany and Israel, the Israel / Near East Fellowships (SPI/NA) have been established at JGU in 2016. The program region covers Israel including the Palestinian territories as well as the countries adjacent to Israel.
SPI/NA has the goal of funding academic projects with a focus on the Israel / Near East region that benefit students. As of Jan. 01, 2021, funding for SPI/NA is available through funding provided by JGU and focuses on (a) research activities of the Israel Professor at JGU and (b) funding for JGU students in analogy to the PROMOS scholarship program, through which applications can be submitted. The International Office is in charge of the administration and coordination of the student scholarship program.
Notice: Scholarships may not be granted for regions for which the Federal Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt) has issued a travel warning.
