Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Israel scientists affiliated with nonprofit organizations and IHEs for medical research projects. Funding is intended to support collaborative and innovative research about the transmission of infectious diseases. Proposals must address the computational or quantitative understanding of pathogen transmission dynamics.

The goal of the Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases (EEID) program is to support important and innovative research on the ecological, evolutionary, and socio-ecological principles that influence the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases. The program's focus is on the discovery of general principles and processes and on building and testing models that elucidate these principles.

Projects must address the quantitative or computational understanding of pathogen transmission dynamics. Research in EEID is expected to be an interdisciplinary effort that goes beyond the scope of typical studies funded by the standing programs of the partner agencies. Projects should bring together such areas as anthropology, bioinformatics, computational science, ecology, economics, epidemiology, evolution, food science, genomics, geography, global health, mathematics, medicine, microbiology, oceanography, plant science, population biology, sociology, physical environmental sciences, systems science, and veterinary medicine. Research within EEID is expected to generate rigorously characterized and tested models that are of value to the scientific community, but also may be useful in decision making.

The history of the EEID program has shown that the most competitive proposals are those that advance broad, conceptual knowledge that reaches beyond the specific system under study and that may be useful for understanding public, agricultural or ecosystem health, natural resource use and wildlife management, and/or economic development. Such proposals are typically interdisciplinary in their approach and/or the nature of the question(s) being addressed.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The total allowable budget for the Israeli PI in the NSF-BSF programs is $80,000/year for experimental program and $55,000/year for theoretical or computer based program (including 15% overhead), over the period of the grant.

Term of Contract:

Grant period for the Israeli will follow that requested by the U.S. partner.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility:
1. For the BSF submission: Israeli principal investigators must have obtained a PhD, MD or an equivalent degree, and must be faculty members or the equivalent of the submitting institutions. Graduate students or postgraduate fellows are not eligible to submit applications.
2. Scientists who wish to apply for grants must submit their applications through a legal entity. The BSF accepts research applications from non-profit organizations only, including institutions of higher learning, government research institutions and hospitals. Although applications cannot be submitted by for-profit or industrial organizations, one of the principal investigators may be affiliated with such an organization. However, the research performed by the investigator affiliated with a for-profit organization will not be funded by the BSF, unless specified differently.

A U.S. scientist submitting an application with an Israeli colleague to the NSF is only subject to the NSF eligibility rules.

Each Israeli scientist is allowed to submit up to two NSF-BSF applications/year. The second submission is allowed if at least one of them is to any of the NSF-BSF programs that have no deadline.

Applications must be submitted jointly by an Israeli, and an U.S. scientist from a U.S. research institution. The addition of a UK, or a Chinese scientist to the proposal, to form a multinational proposal, is also allowed.

Additional eligibility information can be found on page 5 of the Regulation Document. See Attached Files below.

For a list of investigations that are outside the scope of this EEID announcement, see page 4 of the Call for Proposals document in Attached Files below.

Pre-Application Information:

Timeline:
- NSF Deadline: Nov 24, 2021
- BSF Deadline: Nov 30, 2021

Full proposals should be submitted to the BSF no later than 5 pm (Israel time) on November 30, 2021. NSF deadline is November 24, 2021.

Proposals will be submitted to the program twice:
- The U.S. scientist (only) will submit to the NSF using its regulations (http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=gpg) and submission system.
- The Israeli scientist (only) will submit to the BSF, also providing the U.S. scientist information, according to its regulations and submission system.

The NSF accepts applications only from U.S. scientists. Submission to the NSF should be made by the U.S. PI alone, but he/she has to note in the cover page that it is an “NSF-BSF Application” (the Israeli does not appear as a formal co-PI on the application). In the U.S.-Israeli applications, the role of the Israeli partner(s) must be described. Furthermore, it should be clearly explained why the contribution of the Israeli PI to the research project is important/essential.

If awarded a grant, the U.S. scientist will receive a grant from the NSF, while the Israeli scientist will receive a grant from the BSF.
