Applications are generally accepted through May of each year. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s application deadline has been extended to August 31, 2021. Applications should be submitted before the deadline at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=spap2021. Notifications will be given by the end of October.

We will also hold mentoring sessions in the second half of June to help potential candidates prepare for their applications and/or receive career advice. Interested students can reserve a spot at these mentoring roundtables by filling out this form by June 15, 2021.

Applications should include a CV, a research plan, names of references, and any additional details that will allow the committee to assess the quality of the applications. It is the responsibility of the applicants to contact their references and ask them to send their support letter in pdf format to spap2021@easychair.org before the deadline.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are flexible this year on starting dates. We will permit awardees to spend a postdoctoral year in Israel before launching their international research career. We will only pay the award when you have started your year(s) abroad.

For any questions related to the application process, please contact spap2021@easychair.org.
