The Israel Cancer Research Fund in cooperation with the Israel Ministry of Science and Technology

Gesher Award for Academic Excellence in the field of Cancer Research






The Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF) is a voluntary charitable organization that receives its total income from private donations. Its main goals are the advancement of cancer research and the training of Israeli scientists in Israel. To that end, funds for cancer research are available to citizens of Israel, both native-born and those who have settled. Funds are not available to visiting scientists. (Proof of Israeli citizenship must be furnished upon request.)


In accordance with the Israeli governmental policies aimed at encouraging young scientists to return to Israel, the ICRF has partnered with the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) to develop a joint program to fund outstanding cancer scientists who wish to return to Israel to develop an independent research program. This joint venture was developed in order to fund cancer research conducted in Israel by highly qualified returning Post-Docs and assist them to jump-start their careers through a matching funds program which will support their research and also provide a stipend for living expenses during their employment at Israeli research institutes. The ICRF will be responsible for application review and administration of the program in cooperation with MOST.


Funds may be requested for clinical or basic research or training, which must relate to cancer and must be conducted in Israel. To clarify, all research must be conducted in an academic institute or public or semi-public research Institute, i.e. universities and hospitals. Researchers employed in the industrial sector do not qualify.




Information on applying for ICRF research grants can be obtained from our website:
