2006 IA Progress Grants

The Information Architecture Institute (IAI) will award two USD $1,000 Progress Grants for 2006. The purpose of the program is to 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.

Applying for a grant

Applications should be 2,000 words or fewer and must contain:

  • Description of the problem or hypothesis
  • Methodology to be used
  • Explanation of how the resulting work will forward the theory or practice of IA
  • Conditions under which others can use the results (e.g. Creative Commons license)

Questions can be directed to the committee chair, Eric Reiss (elr [at] e-reiss [dot] com). Grant applications should be emailed by September 15th to grants [at] iainstitute [dot] org.
