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 natural and 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:

  • War
  • Crime
  • Terrorism
  • Family and intimate-partner relationships
  • Climate instability and natural resource competition
  • Racial, ethnic, and religious conflict
  • Political extremism and nationalism

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.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Most awards fall within the range of $15,000 to $45,000 per year. Applications for larger amounts must be very strongly justified.

Term of Contract:

- Grants ordinarily commence on January 1. Applicants may request a later starting date, if appropriate to the research project.
- Awards are for periods of one or two years. Applications for longer durations must be strongly justified.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The awards are made to individuals (or sometimes two or, rarely, three principal investigators) for specific projects, not general research support. They are not awarded to institutions for institutional programs.

Applicants for a research grant may be citizens of any country. While almost all recipients of the research grant possess a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree, there are no formal degree requirements for the grant. The grant, however, may not be used to support research undertaken as part of the requirements for a graduate degree. Applicants need not be affiliated with an institution of higher learning, although most are college or university professors.

The Foundation does not supply funds for overhead costs of institutions, travel to professional meetings, self-education, costly laboratory or field equipment, dissemination of research findings, or graduate-degree research. The Foundation will not consider applications for the support of meetings or conferences.

The Foundation will not contribute a portion of costs to a project with other funding unless an independent “Guggenheim component” of the research can be identified and shown to make a difference to what can be accomplished by the larger project, which must be fully funded otherwise.

Pre-Application Information:

New applications must be submitted by August 1 (midnight, EST) for a decision in December. Final decisions are made by the Board of Directors at its meeting in December. Applicants will be informed of the Board’s decision by email and letter. Grants ordinarily commence on January 1. Applicants may request a later starting date, if appropriate to the research project.

Applicants must create an account to access the application.

Letters from referees must be uploaded by August 15.

Distinguished Scholar Awards are made to individuals for specific projects. However, an awardee may choose to have these funds administered through a host institution for reasons of convenience or necessity.
