Those eligible are students working toward their Ph.D. degree in Israeli institutions of higher learning, who have submitted their research proposal and had it approved within 13 months prior to application for the scholarship. Each Israeli university that runs Ph.D. programmes in the fields mentioned above is invited to submit candidates for the ten scholarships, in proportion to the number of doctoral students in those fields in their respective university. The applications are initially assessed by a committee of specialists, with final decisions regarding winners announced by the Clore Scholars Board each May. Please note that the Clore Foundation is unable to accept applications directly from candidates or to enter into discussion with interested students regarding the scholarship. All inquiries should be addressed to the graduate school or scholarship coordinator in the university concerned.
