Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $30,000 to USA nonprofits and IHEs to produce and present projects and programs that highlight the field of architecture. Funding is intended to provide critical support at key points in the development of a project or career. Grants may be used for publications, exhibitions, installations, films, new media projects, conferences/lectures, and other public programs.

Projects must have clearly defined goals, work plans, budgets, and production and dissemination plans.  Grantees will be funded to cover expenses necessary to take the production from the conceptualization stage to realization and through to public presentation. 

The Foundation's priorities for organizations are to: 

  • Assist with the production and presentation of significant programs about architecture and the designed environment in order to promote dialogue, raise awareness, and develop new and wider audiences
  • Support them in their effort to take risks in programming and create opportunities for experimentation
  • Recognize the vital role they play in providing individuals with a public forum in which to present their work
  • Help them to realize projects that would otherwise not be possible without our support.

Criteria for Evaluation:

  • Originality: The project demonstrates an innovative, challenging idea; critical, independent thinking; advanced scholarship; a new or experimental approach
  • Potential for impact: The project makes a meaningful contribution to discourse and/or to the field; expands knowledge; is a catalyst for future inquiry; raises awareness of an understudied issue; promotes diversity in subject matter, participants, and audience
  • Feasibility: The project has clear and realistic goals, time frame, work plan, and budget
  • Capacity: Applicant possesses strong qualifications and/or knowledge; demonstrates ability to carry out the project successfully; has access to necessary resources outside of the grant request.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Graham Foundation grants focus on organizations in the United States, however, a small percentage of international grants are awarded. Please note that final projects must be disseminated in English.

- An organization or academic department/unit may only apply for one grant per year. (In the case of large institutions with multiple departments, a subsidiary department/unit may apply for one grant per year. For example, an academic department/unit at a university may apply for one grant per year.)
- Applicants who have received prior Graham Foundation support must have satisfied all grant requirements before applying again.

Ineligible Costs:
- Endowment
