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 (., 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.
The Institute for Research periodically seeks postdoctoral fellows working in fields related to the history and social study of science for subject-specific or directed long-term (1–3 years) projects. Fellows form research groups around particular topics of interest, pilot new areas of research at CHF, and connect research with CHF’s collections and outreach. Research topics draw upon CHF’s strengths in oral history, public history, digital humanities, science studies, and history of science. Research fellows collaborate to coordinate workshops, reading groups, and research reports that provide critical perspectives on emerging areas of study.
