Get a single funder

It's easy to get a funder from from the API with: /funders/<entity_id>. Here's an example:

That will return a Funder object, describing everything OpenAlex knows about the funder with that ID:

  "id": "",
  "display_name": "National Institutes of Health",
  "alternate_titles": [
  "US National Institutes of Health",
  "Institutos Nacionales de la Salud",
  // other fields removed for brevity

You can make up to 50 of these queries at once by requesting a list of entities and filtering on IDs using OR syntax.
