The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation: Seeking Applications for Research Grant

Deadline: 1 August 2017

The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation invites Research Grant applications from individual researchers or a few principal investigators on natural and social sciences and the humanities that promise to increase understanding of the causes, manifestations, and control of violence and aggression.

Highest priority is given to research that can increase understanding and amelioration of urgent problems of violence and aggression in the modern world.

Funding Information

Most awards fall within the range of $15,000 to $40,000 per year for periods of one or two years.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants for a research grant may be citizens of any country.
  • While almost all recipients of research grant possess a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree, there are no formal degree requirements for the grant.
  • The grant, however, may not be used to support research undertaken as part of the requirements for a graduate degree.
  • Applicants need not be affiliated with an institution of higher learning, although most are college or university professors.
  • Research with no relevance to understanding human problems will not be supported, nor will proposals to investigate urgent social problems where the foundation cannot be assured that useful, sound research can be done.

How to Apply

Applicants can apply online via given website.
