RESEARCH GRANT PROGRAMME FOR YOUNG AFRICAN SCHOLARS
Social science research grant opportunity from the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation for African scholars under the age of the 35.
The H.F. Guggenheim Foundation (www.hfg.org) makes grants for scholarly research into problems of aggression and violence. One programme is reserved for African Scholars under the age of 35, educated and living on the African continent. Selected applicants will attend a methods workshop to refine and improve their research plans in Accra, Ghana, in March 2011, and after submitting revised plans, will receive grants of $2000 each to support their fieldwork. In 2012 they will be funded to attend a professional conference to present their findings and will receive assistance in finding a publisher for their work.
Applications are due by December 1, 2010 for the 2011-2012 awards. Awardees will be announced before the end of the year.
This year’s theme is “Spirituality and Violence.” Proposals are invited to investigate how aspects of religion, ideologies, and traditional cultures and beliefs work either to mitigate conflict (conflict resolution and reconciliation, personal values, community and family strength, etc.) or to encourage conflicts (religious conflicts, subjugation of women, sorcery killings, bias against sexual and other minorities, etc.)
Proposals should be around ten pages in length in ENGLISH, include a description of the problem to be investigated, specific research questions and plans to pursue the answers to those questions, and a C.V. for the applicant including proof of age and residence.
Send them to Karen Colvard, Program Director, as email attachments to email@example.com, or by mail to her at the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation, 25 West 53rd St. New York, NY 10019, USA.
