Since 1956, the Graham Foundation has provided direct funding to individuals for projects that foster the development and exchange of diverse and challenging ideas about architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society.
As one of the few funders of individuals in the field of architecture, the foundation's grants provide important support for the work of emerging and established architects, scholars, writers, artists, designers, curators, filmmakers, and other individuals.
