The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation (HFG)

Deadline Date:

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $40,000 to USA, Canada, and International scholars for research projects addressing aggression and violence. Funding is intended for scholars in the fields of humanities, natural sciences, and the social sciences. Funding is also intended for projects with the potential to improve understanding of the manifestations, causes, and control of aggression and violence. High priority will be given to research that can increase understanding and amelioration of violence and aggression in the modern world.

Questions that interest the foundation concern violence and aggression in relation to social change, intergroup conflict, war, terrorism, crime, and family relationships, among other subjects. Priority will also be given to areas and methodologies not receiving adequate attention and support from other funding sources.

Requests will be considered for salaries, employee benefits, fieldwork, research assistantships, supplies, and equipment, essential secretarial and technical help, and other items necessary to the completion of a project.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Most awards fall within the range of $15,000 to $40,000 per year. Applications for larger amounts must be very strongly justified.

Term of Contract:

Research grants are for periods of one or two years. Applications for longer durations must be very strongly justified.

Grants ordinarily commence on January 1 but later starting dates may be requested if the nature of the research makes this appropriate.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The foundation awards research grants to individuals (or a few principal investigators at most) for individual projects and does not award grants to institutions for institutional programs.

Applicants for a research grant may be citizens of any country. While almost all recipients of the 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.

The Foundation will not contribute a portion of costs to a project with other funding unless an independent "Guggenheim component" of the research can be identified and shown to make a difference to what can be accomplished by the larger project, which must be fully funded otherwise.

The foundation does not supply funds for overhead costs of institutions, travel to professional meetings, self-education, elaborate fixed equipment, dissemination of research findings, or—to repeat—graduate-degree research (except for salary for research assistants or funds awarded through our Dissertation Fellowship, described later).

The foundation will not consider applications for the support of meetings or conferences.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications are submitted online. The online application will be available beginning April 1st.

New applications must be submitted by August 1 (midnight, EST), for a decision in December. Final decisions are made by the Board of Directors at its meeting in December. Applicants will be informed promptly by email as well as letter of the Board's decision.

Letters from referees must be uploaded by August 15.

HFG awards research grants to individuals for individual projects. However, a grantee may choose to have these funds administered through her institution for reasons of convenience and/or necessity.
