Reimbursement of Airfare

The Weizmann Institute assists postdoctoral fellows with the cost of airfare.

Flights to Israel

International postdoctoral fellows who did not reside in Israel during 5 out of the 6 months preceding their term of fellowship (as well as Israelis returning from PhD studies or a postdoctoral fellowship term abroad), who come to the Weizmann Institute of Science for at least one year (excluding any unpaid leave), are entitled to reimbursement of flight expenses to Israel:

  • The refund will be for either round-trip airfare or a one-way fare (the cheaper of the two) at the lowest available economy class fare, on a regularly scheduled commercial flight by the shortest route between Israel and the relevant destination.
  • Postdoctoral fellows who remain at WIS for less than a year are entitled to airfare reimbursement based on the length of their stay (with the exception of those whose fellowship is terminated during the trial period).

Flights from Israel

International postdoctoral fellows who come to the Weizmann Institute of Science for at least two years are also entitled to reimbursement of flight expenses back to their home country from Israel. The refund will be for either round-trip airfare or one-way fare (the cheaper of the two) at the lowest available economy class fare, on a regularly scheduled commercial flight by the shortest route between Israel and the relevant destination.

Terms and Conditions

  • All refunds are subject to the submission of the original receipts, and you must sign a declaration that you will not be reimbursed for this expense by any other source.
  • You may not exchange airfare or relocation expenses with any other type of expenses.
