Deadline: 15 September 2016
The Graham Foundation through its grants to Individuals provides 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.
Along with providing opportunities to individuals, the foundation’s priorities are to:
- 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.
- Overall we are most interested in opportunities which enable us to provide critical support at key points in the development of a project or career.
Types of Grants
- Production & Presentation Grants
- Research & Development Grants
- The Foundation’s grant-making focuses on individuals in the United States, however, they do make a small percentage of international grants. Foundation requires final projects be disseminated in English.
- 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.
How to Apply
The Graham Foundation’s application is a two-stage process and is open submission.
- Stage One/Inquiry Form: Eligible candidates interested in applying for a grant from the Graham Foundation must first submit an Inquiry Form. The Inquiry Form becomes available on the website with each grant cycle and must be submitted online.
- Stage Two/Proposal Form: After Inquiry Forms are reviewed, applicants whose projects best match our priorities and interests are invited to submit a Proposal Form and supplementary materials. Applicants who are not invited to submit a Proposal Form are sent a decline letter at this stage. An invitation to submit a Proposal Form does not guarantee eventual funding.
