Design Educators Community

Research Grant: Call for Readers

June 11, 2010 / By admin

In September 2010 the AIGA Design Educators Community Steering Committee will award its third annual Design Faculty Research Grant. As a means of aiding the decision process, we are looking to experts in various areas of design to review 2-3 grant proposals and provide the Steering Committee with valuable feedback. We have developed a set of questions to guide reviews

Interested in participating? The deadline for grant proposals is July 1, followed by reviews throughout July and August. Thus, prior to July 1, we simply ask that you email Stacie Rohrbach at stacie [at] cmu [dot] edu, stating if you are willing and able to help us. In an effort to send you proposals that match topics for which you hold reasonable knowledge, we ask that you also please include a few statements that describe your areas of expertise and your cv, listing your current contact information.

Provided that we receive proposals that match your areas of expertise, you will receive an email message from us that includes a few proposals and a pdf of the submission form during the latter part of July. This will give you approximately five or six weeks to complete the reviews.

Thank you for considering this request. If you have any questions or problems please feel free to contact Stacie Rohrbach

Also, in the meantime, learn more about the grant, read about work conducted by past grant recipients, review grant proposal guidelines, and download the required proposal form here.
