APF is proud to offer travel grants and awards to Israeli physicians and other healthcare professionals to facilitate their attendance at international meetings and conferences. These conferences afford the opportunity for Israelis in the healthcare community to meet both formally and informally with colleagues around the world. APF has granted awards to individuals nominated by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Medical Corps of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as well as by CEOs and department heads of Israeli hospitals.
In addition, since 1990, APF’s Edward H. Kass Fund has sponsored an annual competitive research award, to be granted to an outstanding young Israeli physician conducting research in Israel at a medical institution, hospital or university.
In the past, APF has awarded grants to Israeli oncologists for postdoctoral fellowship training.
