The IA Institute will award two USD $1,000 progress grants for 2010.

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.
