H.F. Guggenheim Dissertation Fellowship

December 3, 2015 Karen Popp DissertationsFellowshipsFoundations

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 the foundation’s program of support for postdoctoral research, ten or more dissertation fellowships are awarded each year to graduate students who would complete the writing of a dissertation within the award year.

These fellowships of $20,000 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 are only appropriate for students approaching the final year of their Ph.D. work.

This fellowship is not for support of doctoral research. Applications are evaluated in comparison with each other and not in competition with the postdoctoral research grant proposals. Applicants may be citizens of any country and studying at colleges or universities in any country

Applications for dissertation fellowships must be received by February 1, for a decision in June.

Visit the HFG Foundation for general guidelines and application.
