History

BSF was designed to promote and financially support collaboration in scientific research. At the core of the agreement is the tenet that all scientific gains would be equally shared by the United States and Israel, further cementing the relationship between these friends and allies.

BSF supports the finest scientific minds in both countries.  The grants themselves span a wide sphere of disciplines represented in the health and life sciences, natural sciences, social sciences and exact sciences.
