$1000 IAI Grant
I'm on the committee again this year and am hoping to see some great proposals.
Last year the people who were awarded also presented at the IA Summit where their talks
were well received. Is there anything better than getting $1,000 for indulging in geekery?
INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE INSTITUTE PROGRESS GRANTS ================================================== The IA Institute will award two USD $1,000 progress grants for 2007. The purpose of the program is twofold: * to encourage researchers and practitioners to investigate IA-specific issues * to publicize useful work that furthers the information architecture body of knowledge. Applications should propose work that will forward the theory and practice of information architecture. This can include original research, a synthesis of important existing research, or the development of an innovative new technique. MORE INFORMATION is available online including details about the submission process and eligibility requirements. * http://www.iainstitute.org/en/members/grants/grant_program.php IMPORTANT DATES * Oct. 15, 2007: Application deadline * Nov. 1, 2007: Grant recipients announced and first half of grant awarded * Dec. 15, 2007: Grant recipients submit brief progress report to grant committee * May 1, 2008: Completed work submitted to grant committee, published on iainstitute.org, and second half of grant awarded This is the third year the Institute has funded the progress grants.
