Awarded By

Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation

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 number of awards offered varies annually. *Please note: The number of recipients for this program varies according to the number of students meeting the eligibility requirements in any given year. In previous years, an average of 21 grants have been awarded.

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.
