The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation (HFG) welcomes proposals from any of
the natural and social sciences and the humanities that promise to increase
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.
In addition to our program of support for postdoctoral research, ten or more
dissertation fellowships are awarded each year to individuals who will
complete the writing of the dissertation within the award year. These
fellowships of $15,000 each are designed to contribute to the support of the
doctoral candidate to enable him or her to complete the thesis in a timely
manner, and it is only appropriate to apply for support for the final year
of Ph.D. work. Applications are evaluated in comparison with each other and
not in competition with the postdoctoral research proposals. Applicants may
be citizens of any country and studying at colleges or universities in any
Particular questions that interest the foundation concern violence,
aggression, and dominance in relation to social change, the socialization of
children, intergroup conflict, interstate warfare, crime, family
relationships, and investigations of the control of aggression and violence.
Research with no useful relevance to understanding and attempting to cope
with problems of human violence and aggression 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. Priority will
also be given to areas and methodologies not receiving adequate attention
and support from other funding sources.
