About the Programme

The Clore Scholars Programme was established in 1991 by the Clore Foundation, with the aim of promoting outstanding young Israeli scientists, and in the hope that the programme will contribute significantly to the furthering of scientific excellence in Israel. Scholars are selected each year from among young students and researchers pursuing a career in all fields of the natural sciences, including mathematics, physics, chemistry, the life sciences, earth sciences, computer science, agriculture, engineering and technology. Ten new scholars per year are appointed, with each scholar receiving a generous three-year fellowship (currently set at $27,000 per year), a personal award, and an allowance for research-related expenses.

The programme is directed by an independent Board of seven members, comprised of senior academic scientists, the Chairman of the Clore Israel Foundation, one of the Trustees, and other leading public figures from the worlds ofhi-tech and business.
