About the Grant:
The AIGA Design Educators Community will award two (2) two-year grants to support research undertaken by a North American-based, college/university-level design faculty member or team of faculty members that contributes to the base of knowledge that informs the AIGA Design Educators Community and that aligns with its mission. One $7,500 award and one $2,500 award will be granted on 02.14.14. The $7,500 grant will be awarded to support the continuation or advancement of an ongoing design research project; the $2,500 grant will be awarded to support the initiation of a new design research project. Both grants are designed to fund projects over the course of two years.
The AIGA Design Faculty Research Grant is an initiative facilitated by the AIGA Design Educators Community Steering Committee and by the AIGA National Design Center. All eligible proposals will be reviewed by peer evaluators selected by the Design Educators Community Steering Committee. The review process will culminate in the awarding of each of these two grants.
