Funded 2018 HFG Foundation Young African Scholars Program

Application Deadline: Submit applications on or before 15th December, 2017

Eligible Countries: Only African countries should apply.

Eligible Fields: Applicants’ projects are expected to highlight the issues of violence and aggression.

Award Info: Harry Guggenheim established this foundation to support research on violence, aggression, and dominance because 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. We 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.

Scholarship Type:  Scholarships will come in the form of grants
