Design Faculty Research Grant

February 15, 2011 / By admin

The Design Faculty Research Grant is an ongoing initiative. Through a competitive, peer-review process, one grant of $5000 is awarded annually to provide support for design research. This includes scholarship that generates new knowledge, integrates design knowledge into other disciplines as an influential force, or explores new pedagogies through the teaching of design and evaluation of learning outcomes. Thus far, we have awarded four grants and will begin our fifth annual call for proposals in spring 2012. The research projects that we have recently funded can be found in the Resources section of this site. If you would like to share your thoughts regarding the initiative or volunteer to lend a hand to the review process please contact Ruki Ravikumar.
