Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation - HFG

פרופילי מימון

פתוח לחברי סגל הטכניון בלבד. אנא התחבר\י כדי לצפות בפרופילי המימון של הקרן (בפינה הימנית העליונה).

The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation (HFG) welcomes proposals from any of the natural and social sciences and the humanities that promise to increase understanding of the causes, manifestations, and control of violence, aggression, and dominance. Highest priority is given to research that can increase understanding and amelioration of urgent problems of violence, aggression, and dominance in the modern world.

Particular questions that interest HFG concern violence, aggression, and dominance in relation to social change, the socialization of children, intergroup conflict, interstate warfare, crime, family relationships, and investigations of the control of aggression and violence. Research with no useful relevance to understanding human problems will not be supported, nor will proposals to investigate urgent social problems where the foundation cannot be assured that useful, sound research can be done. Priority will also be given to areas and methodologies not receiving adequate attention and support from other funding sources.

HFG awards research grants to individuals for individual projects and does not award grants to institutions for institutional programs. As discussed in the above section on "Budgeting & Taxation," individuals who receive research grants may be subject to taxation on the funds awarded, depending on locality, tax status, timing, nature of the award, and other factors.

For administrative convenience, a grantee may choose for the foundation to pay grant funds to an institution on behalf of the grantee, rather than to the grantee directly. If the grantee so directs, the grant will be administered and accounted for by the institution on behalf of the grantee in accordance with the budget prepared by the grantee and included with the application (subject to revisions approved by the foundation). Applications must clearly specify whether the funds requested will be administered through an institution or will be paid to the grantee directly. Administration of grant funds through an institution does not change the grant's tax status as a grant made to the individual researcher.

HFG ordinarily makes awards in the range of $15,000 to $30,000 a year for periods of one or two years. Applications for larger amounts and longer durations must be very strongly justified.

The original proposal should contain the budget for the entire period of the project—not to exceed three years in any case—and requests for support in future years will be limited to the amount projected for that year. All awards, however, are for one-year terms initially. Further funding of projects tentatively approved for more than one year will require annual applications for continuation and will depend upon evidence of satisfactory progress and an account of expenditures during the previous year. Any substantial change in the distribution of funds within the budget of a grant awarded must be approved in advance by the foundation.

Requests will be considered for salaries, employee benefits, research assistantships, supplies and equipment, field work, essential secretarial and technical help, and other items necessary to the successful completion of a project. The foundation does not supply funds for overhead costs of institutions, travel to professional meetings, self-education, elaborate fixed equipment, or support while completing the requirements for advanced degrees (apart from that indirectly involved in research assistantships or awarded through our Dissertation Fellowship). The foundation will not accept applications for the support of meetings and conferences or travel costs for participants.
