Foundation / Corporation
Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy
Grants of $7,500 and additional funding opportunities to USA, Canada, and International PhD candidates to support scholarship in the field of social policy. Grants will be awarded on the basis of merit and funding is unrestricted; awardees may use the grant on their project as needed.
Aim and Mission
The foundation supports projects with a social policy application on either a global or local level.
Applications are evaluated based on the Trustees’ assessment of criteria such as: feasibility, applicability, originality, methodology, theoretically informed or empirically rich research, and letters of recommendation. No specific weight is given to any one area. Proposals are evaluated based on the overall merit of all aspects of the application.
Each year, the Trustees issue special monetary awards for the most outstanding project in specific subject-matter areas. These awards cannot be applied for directly, and are only granted at the discretion of the Trustees. Special Award recipients receive an additional $1,500 unless otherwise noted:
GrantWatch ID#: 183892
Each grant is worth a total of $7,500; $5,000 is awarded initially and $2,500 upon completion of the project.
Special Awards, given for outstanding work in specific disciplinary areas, are worth an additional $1,500, with the exception of:
- Irving Louis Horowitz Award: This award carries with it an additional $5,000.
- Trustees' Award: This award carries with it an additional $3,000.
Grants are non-renewable and recipients have five years from announcement of the award to complete their project and claim their final payment.
