Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts Invites Applications
Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts

Founded in 1956, the Chicago-based Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts provides project-based grants to individuals and organizations to foster the development and exchange of diverse and challenging ideas about architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society.

In order to promote dialogue and raise public awareness about the role of architecture in culture and society, the foundation is inviting applications from nonprofit organizations to assist with the production and presentation of significant programs about architecture and the designed environment. To that end, grants of up to $30,000 will be awarded to help organizations with production-related expenses incurred as it takes a project from conceptualization to realization. Projects may include but are not limited to public presentations such as publications, exhibitions, installations, films, new media projects, and conferences/lectures.

Preference will be given to projects that enable the foundation to provide critical support at key points in the development of a project or career.

To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Under some circumstances, the foundation will make grants to other entities when there is clear evidence that the public interest will be served (e.g., in the case of a publisher or an emerging organization that does not yet have tax-exempt status).

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Graham Foundation website.
