Additional information:

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. Grants support research in the understanding of human social problems related to dominance, aggression, and violence. Highest priority is given to increasing the understanding & amelioration of urgent problems of violence & agression in the modern world. Program is highly competitive. APPLICATIONS MAY NOT BE SUBMITTED BY FAX OR EMAIL.
