The Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy was established in 1997 to support the advancement of research and understanding in the major fields of the social sciences, which include psychology, anthropology, sociology, economics, urban affairs, area studies, and political science.
Through its grants program, the foundation awards grants of $7,500 — $5,000 at the start of the project and $2,500 at its completion — to Ph.D. candidates in support of dissertations that address contemporary issues in the social sciences.
Applicants are not required to be a citizen or resident of the United States; however, grants are limited to aspiring Ph.D. students at the dissertation level whose project has received approval from their appropriate department head/university.
The deadline to apply is January 31, 2017. See the Horowitz Foundation website for more information.
