Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation Dissertation Fellowships 2020 for International Students
Applications are invited for the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation Dissertation Fellowships 2020 to complete dissertations in the fields of violence and aggression in relation to social change, intergroup conflict, war, terrorism, crime, and family relationships, or related fields.
Application Deadline: 1st February 2020
About the Award: The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation Dissertation Fellowships are being offered to PhD students from around the world, who are completing the writing of their dissertations in the fields of violence and aggression in relation to social change, intergroup conflict, war, terrorism, crime, and family relationships, or related fields.
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.
Eligible Field(s): PhD dissertation written by students in their final year, on violence and aggression in relation to social change, intergroup conflict, war, terrorism, crime, and family relationships, etc.
Type: PhD Degree
- These fellowships of $20,000 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 only appropriate for 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.
- These grants are made to Ph.D. 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 that he will complete the dissertation within the year, he should not apply, as the application will 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.
Eligible Countries: Any
To be Taken at (Country): Colleges and universities in any country
Number of Awards: Ten or more
Value of Award: US$20,000 each
Duration of Award:
- Timing: Applications for dissertation fellowships must be received by February 1, for a decision in June. Applications are reviewed during the spring and final decisions are made by the Board of Directors at its meeting in June. Applicants will be informed promptly by e-mail as well as letter of the Board’s decision. Awards ordinarily commence on September 1, but other starting dates (after July 1) may be requested if the nature of the project makes this appropriate.

Any papers, books, articles, or other publications based on the research should also be sent to the foundation.
