  1. This award is for international and U.S. students.
  2. Research proposals must be grounded in any of the natural sciences, social sciences and/or the humanities.

In order to qualify, students must meet the following criteria:

Description: This award is available to assist graduate students in research projects grounded in any of the natural sciences, social sciences and/or the humanities; and must seek to increase the understanding of the causes, manifestations, and control of violence, aggression, and dominance.

Application requirements for the Harry Frank Guggenheim Research Grant are:

  • Recommendation letters (2)
  • Application form
Additional Information: The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation (HFG) welcomes proposals from students of the natural and social sciences and the humanities. Proposals must seek to increase the understanding of the causes, manifestations, and control of violence, aggression, and dominance. Highest priority is given to research that can increase understanding and amelioration of urgent problems of violence, aggression, and dominance in the modern world. Priority will also be given to areas and methodologies not receiving adequate attention and support from other funding sources. Research with little relevance to increasing the understanding of human problems will not be supported, nor will proposals seeking to investigate urgent social problems that will not conduct useful, sound research. HFG awards research grants to individuals for individual projects and does not award grants to institutions for institutional programs. Decisions are made by the board of directors at its meeting in December and applicants will be informed promptly via mail. Grants ordinarily commence on Jan. 1, but later starting dates may be requested if the nature of the research makes this appropriate.

Award Amount: Awards range from $15,000 to $40,000 annually. All awards are for a one-year term initially. Further funding of projects tentatively approved for more than one year will require annual applications for continuation and will depend upon evidence of satisfactory progress and an account of expenditures during the previous year. Any substantial change in the distribution of funds within the budget of a grant awarded must be approved in advance by the foundation. Research proposals for larger amounts and longer durations require strong justification.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $25,000.

A completed research grant application will include three copies of each of the following items: a title page (form available on the HFG website); an abstract, which includes the name of the applicant in the upper right corner of all pages (form available on the HFG website); personal information, including a curriculum vitae and a list of relevant publications for all members of the research team (maximum of two pages each per person); an estimated research budget (U.S. dollars); a statement justifying the research budget; a research plan, which should outline the specific aims of the project, and the background and the significance of the proposed research (typically 10 to 20 double-spaced pages); a description of the applicant's facilities and resources; a statement discussing how the applicant will protect the rights and welfare of his/her research subject(s); a copy of the Internal Revenue Service certification of tax-exempt status, if applicable; and two letters of recommendation using the referee form provided in the application.

In addition, the research plan must outline the specific aims of the project and discuss the background and significance of the proposed work, and describe the methods and procedures of the research and the means by which the results will be analyzed and interpreted. The application should be concise, but give sufficient detail for a proper evaluation. The completed research grant application must be received by the deadline date. *Please note: Students have until Aug. 15 to submit the referee forms.
