The Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation awards grants of up to $2,200 each in support of research in the archival collections of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, part of the system of Presidential Libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration.  The collections are 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.

The application postmark deadline for the Fall 2018 round of grants is Saturday, September 15.

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 Ford Library for information about the holdings related to your project.
