The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation (HFG)

Grants of up to $45,000 to USA, Canada, and International scholars for research projects addressing aggression and violence. Funding is intended for scholars in the fields of humanities, natural sciences, and the social sciences. Eligible projects are those with the potential to improve understanding of the manifestations, causes, and control of aggression and violence. Highest priority is given to research that addresses urgent, present-day problems of violence—what produces it, how it operates, and what prevents or reduces it.
The Foundation is interested in violence related to many subjects, including, but not limited to, the following:
The Foundation supports research that investigates the basic mechanisms in the production of violence, but primacy is given to proposals that make a compelling case for the relevance of potential findings for policies intended to reduce these ills. Likewise, historical research is considered to the extent that it is relevant to a current situation of violence. Examinations of the effects of violence are welcome insofar as a strong case is made that these outcomes may serve, in turn, as causes of future violence.
Requests will be considered for salaries, employee benefits, fieldwork, research assistantships, supplies and equipment, essential secretarial and technical help, and other items necessary for the completion of a project.
