Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation Dissertation Fellowships

Application Deadline: February 1, 2021

  • For PhD students entering the dissertation stage
  • Topics including violence and aggression
  • Award of $25,000

These fellowships of $25,000 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 available only to 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.

Questions that interest the foundation concern violence and aggression in relation to social change, intergroup conflict, war, terrorism, crime, and family relationships, among other subjects. Dissertations with no relevance to understanding human violence and aggression will not be supported. Priority will also be given to areas and methodologies not receiving adequate attention and support from other funding sources.
