Graham Foundation: Call for Applications for 2019 Grants to Individuals

Deadline: 15 September 2018

The Graham Foundation is seeking applications for its 2019 Grants to Individuals.

Priorities

The priorities for Individuals are to:

  • Provide opportunities to create, develop, and communicate a project about architecture and the designed environment that will contribute to their creative, intellectual, and professional growth at crucial or potentially transformative stages in their careers.
  • Support their efforts to take positions, develop new forms of expression, and engage debate.
  • Help them communicate their work in the public realm and reach new and wider audiences.
  • Support new voices by giving priority to first-time applicants.

Grant Types

The Graham Foundation offers two types of grants to individuals:

  • Production and Presentation Grants:
    • Production and Presentation Grants assist individuals with the production-related expenses that are necessary to take a project from conceptualization to realization and public presentation. These projects include, but are not limited to, publications, exhibitions, installations, films, and new media projects.
    • Grant amount: Production and Presentation Grants to individuals do not exceed $20,000 and are likely to be less. Given the demand for funding, the Graham Foundation is not always able to fund projects at the full request amount.
    • Grant period: Production and Presentation Grants must be completed within two years. Applicants should allow sufficient time to plan, implement, close out their project, and, if funded, acknowledge Graham Foundation support in all published media.
  • Research and Development Grants:
    • Research and Development Grants assist individuals with seed money for research-related expenses such as travel, documentation, materials, supplies, and other development costs. Projects must have clearly defined goals, work plans, and budgets.
    • Grant amount: Research and Development Grants do not exceed $10,000 and are likely to be less. Given the demand for funding, the Graham Foundation is not always able to fund grantees at the full request amount.
    • Grant period: Research and Development Grants must be completed within one year. Applicants should allow sufficient time to plan, implement, close out their project, and, if funded, acknowledge Graham Foundation support in all published media.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Foundation’s grantmaking focuses on individuals in the United States.
  • Individuals are eligible to apply for Production and Presentation Grants and Research and Development Grants.
  • Collaborative projects by individuals are eligible for funding. A collaborator is defined as a co-author of the project. A collaborator is not a participant who is providing contracted services for the project.
  • Individuals may only apply for one grant per year.
  • Applicants who have received prior Graham Foundation support must have satisfied all grant requirements before applying again.
  • Individuals working on independent projects who are required by their organizations to apply for and receive funding under the aegis of the organization (e.g., a faculty member of an academic institution) may use a fiscal agent.
