The AIA Housing Knowledge Community and Small Project Practitioners (SPP) are proud to offer the 2012 AIA Innovation and Practice in House Design Research Grant. This grant will fund one emerging professional (defined in the attachment) to conduct research on residential design practice in small architectural firms or a topic of direct applicability to these firms. Applicants are encouraged to research emerging approaches to the professional practice of architecture.
The Researcher will have the opportunity to undertake comprehensive professional research on residential and housing design in practice. The Researcher’s completed work will be published on AIA websites. The Researcher will be funded in the amount of $7,000 for a research effort that is the equivalent to a 12-week full time architectural internship.
