Israel Awards

Eligible Institutions

The universities below, in chronological order by year of founding, are eligible to submit up to nine nominations: three in each subject category that the Blavatnik Awards recognize.

If you are interested in being nominated for the Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists in Israel, please contact your institution’s Institutional Contact (listed below) in the first instance.  They will be able to provide information about your institution’s internal selection process.  Please note that self-nominations will not be accepted.

Research institutes and university hospitals that operate under the umbrella of a parent university should ensure their young faculty members are incorporated into the selection process of the nominees of that university.
