The Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy aims to support emerging scholars through small grants; promote scholarship with a social policy application; and encourage projects that address contemporary issues in the social sciences.



Grants are awarded solely on merit. Each award is worth a total of $7,500; $5,000 is awarded initially and $2,500 upon the completion of the project.



  • Current PhD candidates who are working on their dissertation.
  • Applicants who do not already have a PhD; those who do, are ineligible.
  • Applications must have defended their dissertation proposal or had their topic approved by their department.
  • We accept applications from any country and any university in the word. U.S. citizenship or residency is not required.
