“A postdoc in Israel combines access to world-class scholars and academic resources with the amazing experience of living in one of the most fascinating and historically-rich regions of the world. My family and I have been grateful to meet to many people who are willing to invite us into life here. The Fulbright staff have helped at every stage with logistics, questions, connections, and providing opportunities to encounter Israel beyond the tourist’s surface.”

—Erike Tritle, 2018 Fulbright Fellow, Ben-Gurion University
