The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation is offering grants for submitted proposals from any of the natural and social sciences and the humanities category that promise to increase understanding of the causes, manifestations, and control of violence and aggression. The research must give answers to offered questions on violence and aggression in relation to social change, inter-group 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.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Applicants for a research grant may be citizens of any country. 
  • While almost all recipients of our research grant possess a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree, there are no formal degree requirements for the grant. 
  • The grant 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.

Grant Value:

  • Most awards fall within the range of $15,000 to $40,000 per year for periods of one or two years. 
  • Applications for larger amounts and longer durations must be very strongly justified. 
  • 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. 
  • Individuals who receive research grants may be subject to taxation on the funds awarded.

About Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation:

It was established by Harry Guggenheim to support research on violence, aggression, and dominance. The foundation places a priority on the study of neuroscience, genetics, animal behavior, the social sciences, history, criminology, and the humanities which illuminate modern human problems. Grants are made to study aspects of "violence related to youth, family relationships, media effects, crime, biological factors, intergroup conflict related to religion, ethnicity, and nationalism, and political violence deployed in war and sub-state terrorism, as well as processes of peace and the control of aggression."
