Term of Contract:

The Earliest project start date is June 1, 2020.

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 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.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grantmaking focuses on individuals in the United States, however, the Foundation does make a small percentage of international grants. Please note that final projects must 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.

The Graham Foundation does not require individuals to have a fiscal agent. However, in the event that an organization requires an individual employee working on an independent project to apply for and receive funding under the aegis of the organization (e.g., a faculty member of an academic institution), the organization may serve as a fiscal agent. Individuals that require a fiscal agent must follow all guidelines, eligibility requirements, and deadlines for Grants to Individuals. Applicants must indicate on the Inquiry Form that they have a fiscal agent.

Ineligible Costs:
- Endowment
- General operating expenses
- Capital projects
- Scholarship aid or work in pursuit of an academic degree (advanced doctoral candidates are eligible to apply for the Carter Manny Award)
- Work focused on K-12 curriculum or learning and/or intended for K-12 audiences
- Debt or expenses incurred prior to the date of the grant request

Pre-Application Information:

Eligible candidates interested in applying for a grant from the Graham Foundation must first submit an Inquiry Form. The deadline to submit an Inquiry Form is September 15, 2019, 5:00 PM Central Time.

Timeline:
- Stage One/Inquiry Form available: July 15, 2019
- Stage One/Inquiry Form deadline: September 15, 2019, 5:00 p.m. Central Time
- Stage Two/Proposal Form notification: after December 15, 2019
- Grant decision notification: April 2020
- Earliest project start date: June 1, 2020

After Inquiry Forms are reviewed, applicants whose projects best match the Foundation's 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. Please note that the Foundation cannot accept proposals other than those invited.

Funding recommendations are presented to the Board of Trustees for consideration. If a grant is awarded to you, you will be asked to sign a grant agreement that outlines the conditions of the grant, such as annual reporting.

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.

A recipient of a Research and Development Grant is eligible to apply for a Production and Presentation Grant for the same project once the first grant has been satisfied, however, future funding is not guaranteed.
