The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation invites applications for the HFG Foundation Dissertation Fellowship for PhD students worldwide in the 2018/2019 academic year.
The foundation was established by Harry Guggenheim to sponsor scholarly research on problems of violence, aggression, and dominance.
The foundation places a priority on the study of social sciences, history, criminology, and the humanities which illuminate modern human problems, providing both research grants to established scholars and dissertations fellowships to graduate students during the dissertation-writing year.
- These grants are made to PhD. candidates who are entering the dissertation stage of graduate school. Usually, this means that fieldwork or other research is complete and writing has begun.
- If analysis and writing are not far enough along for an applicant to be confident of completing the dissertation within the year, he or she should not apply, as the application will probably not be competitive with those that comply with this timetable.
- In some disciplines, particularly experimental fields, research and writing can reasonably be expected to be completed within the same year, and in those cases it is appropriate to apply.
How to apply
