Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy

The Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy was established in 1997 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization to support the advancement of research and understanding in the major fields of the social sciences: specifically, in the fields of psychology, anthropology, sociology, economics, urban affairs, area studies, political science, and other disciplines. The Foundation aims to achieve its objectives primarily through direct assistance to individual scholars who require small grants to further their research with emphasis on policy-oriented studies.

Larger philanthropic organizations often overlook, or cannot accommodate, small grants for worthwhile projects or research in progress. Scholars in the initial stages of their careers, those not yet established, and those working at less prominent or overseas institutions in particular may have difficulty in securing funding for research. The HFSP seeks to fill this need by providing grants for smaller projects, in whole or part. By so doing, it intends to support policy-oriented research in the social science community, as well as to alert major foundations and academic institutions to the scholarship of social scientists with policy interests.
