FYI. Grants for research on violence and aggression

FYI. Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation Research Grants

The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation invites applications for its research grants. These support research in the natural and social sciences and the humanities that promise to increase understanding of the causes, manifestations and control of violence and aggression. Priority is given to research that can increase understanding and amelioration of urgent problems of violence and aggression in the modern world. Projects may concern violence and aggression in relation to social change, intergroup conflict, war, terrorism, crime and family relationships, among other subjects.

Applicants may be citizens of any country. There are no formal degree requirements although the grant may not be used to support research undertaken as part of the requirements for a graduate programme. Grants will be awarded to individuals only, institutions are not eligible to apply.

Grants usually range from USD 15,000 to USD 40,000 per year for periods of one or two years. Applications for larger amounts and longer periods must be very strongly justified.

Deadline: 1st August 2018
