Feliks Gross (June 17, 1906 in Kraków - November 9, 2006 in New York) was a Polish-American sociologist.

Before World War II, he became a lecturer at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. During the war, he escaped to USA, where he would hold many positions in academia, including a professorship at Graduate Centre and Brooklyn College in City University of New York and at the University of Wyoming.

Gross wrote more than 20 books and uncounted articles published in many languages.

The Feliks Gross Endowment Award was established at CUNY in his memory.[1] This award is given annually to one to two assistant professors in recognition of outstanding research in the humanities or sciences.
