HARRY FRANK GUGGENHEIM FOUNDATION
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.
Particular questions that interest HFG 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 human problems isl not e supported,nor arel proposals to investigate urgent social problems where the foundation cannot be assured that useful, sound research can be done.
Priority is given to areas and methodologies not receiving adequate attention and support from other funding sources.
HFG awards research grants to individuals for individual projects and does not award grants to institutions for institutional programmes. For administrative convenience, a grantee may choose for the foundation to pay grant funds to an institution on behalf of the grantee, rather than to the grantee directly. If the grantee so directs, the grant will be administered and accounted for by the institution on behalf of the grantee in accordance with the budget prepared by the grantee and included with the application (subject to revisions approved by the foundation). Applications must clearly specify whether the funds requested will be administered through an institution or will be paid to the grantee directly. HFG ordinarily makes awards in the range of $15,000 to $30,000 a year for periods of one or two years. Applications for larger amounts and longer durations must be very strongly justified.
