Harry Frank Guggenheim Emerging Scholar Awards 2023

Applications are welcome for the Harry Frank Guggenheim Emerging Scholar Awards which honor promising doctoral candidates who are in the final stages of completing a dissertation that addresses a significant aspect of violence.

The Foundation welcomes proposals from any natural and social sciences or allied disciplines that promise to increase understanding of the causes, manifestations, and control of violence and aggression. The highest priority is research addressing 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 Harry Frank Guggenheim Emerging Scholar Awards grant is worth $25,000 for one year and helps doctorate candidates get the financial support they need to finish their dissertations on time and further the Foundation’s stated research goals.


Candidates for the Ph.D. who are beginning their dissertation phase of graduate school are eligible to apply. Typically, this signifies that writing has started or will start at the start of the award period, and fieldwork or other research is finished.
