Notre Dame Global and departments across the University offer funding opportunities for international research that can be used toward work at the University of Notre Dame at Tantur. 

Schlindwein Family Tel Aviv University – Notre Dame Research Collaboration Grants

The University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame) and Tel Aviv University (TAU) are pleased to continue and deepen their relationship by offering 2 joint grant programs. Through these jointly funded, jointly advertised programs both institutions are inviting proposals for joint research projects and joint workshop proposals with the potential to achieve international recognition and to generate continued external research funds for both partners.

These programs are made possible with the generous support of University benefactors who separately made a gift directly to TAU for their faculty to further collaborations with Notre Dame.

Both programs are listed below. Where appropriate, projects can be offered administrative and logistical support through the University of Notre Dame at Tantur.

Unearthing the Past

The University of Notre Dame at Tantur operates on 36 acres between Jerusalem and Bethlehem. The land figures to have historical and spiritual significance, due to its proximity to key holy sites. The list of sites located within several kilometers of Tantur read like a partial pilgrimage points of interest pamphlet.

Over the summer of 2019, Notre Dame theology students joined professional archaeologists to look for clues buried in the ancient soil of the Holy Land. What the students found could make valuable contributions to our understanding of life at the border of biblical Judah and Philistia, as well as the history of the land purchased in the 1960s for what became the University's campus here.
