A generous gift from the Pershing Square Foundation inaugurated Harvard’s Foundations of Human Behavior Initiative. The Pershing Square Foundation gift created three new faculty chairs in the Foundations of Human Behavior and established the Pershing Square Fund for Research on the Foundations of Human Behavior. The Pershing Square Research Fund will support at least 25 grants per year over each of the next five years.
To apply simultaneously to this fund and all other FHB research funds, follow the instructions at the Funds for Research on the Foundations of Human Behavior. Only one application is needed, though there are multiple research funds. After funding decisions are made, successful applications will be allocated to a specific research fund.
