The Gerald R. Ford Foundation awards grants of up to $2,200 each in support of research in the archival collections of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library, part of the system of Presidential Libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. The collections are especially rich on U.S. government domestic policies, diplomacy, and national political affairs in the 1970s. A grant helps defray the travel and living expenses of a research trip to the Ford Library.

Any person with a serious interest in the holdings of the Ford Library may apply.  Selection criteria include the scope and pertinence of the Library's archival collections, project significance, appropriateness of project design, and applicant qualifications.  Before you apply, please contact the Library for information about holdings related to your project.

The application postmark deadline for the Fall 2017 round of grants is Friday, September 15.

NOTE: Overseas applicants are welcome to apply, but they will be responsible for the costs of travel between their home country and North America. The grants only cover travel within North America.
