$5000 Goldberg Fellowship

The Melvin M. Goldberg Undergraduate Fellowship of $5000 for Research in Israel

Application Deadline: 1 March annually.

This USD $5000 MMG Fellowship in memory of Dr. Melvin Morris Goldberg (BSE UPenn 1961 / Ohio State PhD 1963) provides summer travel support to an ambitious undergraduate student from any U.S. University to perform supervised technical research at one of Israel's universities or research centers (eg, Bar-Ilan, Ben-Gurion, Haifa U., Hebrew U., Technion, Tel-Aviv U., the Weizmann Institute).

Research can be on any STEM topic. To apply, candidates work with an advisor at their home university to identify and confirm a willing supervisor in Israel. The Goldberg Fellowship is awarded to a U.S. junior or senior who demonstrates the initiative, enthusiasm, and aptitude to make such arrangements.
