HFG Emerging Scholars Awards 2023

The Harry Frank Guggenheim – HFG Emerging Scholar Awards is designed to recognize promising graduate-student researchers in their final year of writing a doctoral dissertation examining a salient aspect of violence.

Proposals are invited from any of the natural and social sciences or allied disciplines that promise to increase understanding of the causes, manifestations, and control of violence and aggression. The Awards Program will give priority to research that addresses urgent, present-day problems of violence (what produces it, how it operates, and what prevents or reduces it).

  1. War
  2. Crime
  3. Terrorism
  4. Family and intimate partner relationships

Brief Information About Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation

The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation was founded by Harry Guggenheim to support research on violence, aggression, and dominance.

HFG writes (He was convinced that solid, thoughtful, scholarly and scientific research, experimentation, and analysis would in the end accomplish more than the usual solutions impelled by urgency rather than understanding. HFG do not yet hold the solution to violence, but better analyses, more acute predictions, constructive criticisms, and new, effective ideas will come in time from investigations such as those supported by our grants).

Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation also places priority on the study of neuroscience, genetics, animal behaviour, the social sciences, history, criminology, and the humanities which illuminate modern human problems.

The HFG Awards are offered to aid the study of aspects of violence related to youth, family relationships, media effects, crime, biological factors, intergroup conflict related to religion, ethnicity, and nationalism, and political violence deployed in war and sub-state terrorism.
