Grants of up to $30,000 and grants of up to $70,000 to USA, Canada, and International researchers for applied research projects on interior design. Funding may be used for start-up projects, seed funds, or full research projects. The research topic for this year's funding is how diversity, equity, and inclusivity can be supported through interior design.
The ASID Foundation is pleased to announce the Transform Research Grants to provide essential funding to address critical gaps in industry knowledge, advance design understanding, and transform the practice of interior design for improving the human experience. The ASID Foundation exists to advance the profession and communicate the ability of interior design to enhance the human experience through empirical research, scholarships, and education. To expand knowledge about how interior design impacts the world around us, the ASID Foundation is seeking research projects that generate outcomes with practical applications for design practitioners and their clients. Proposed research should be directly relevant, easily translatable, and of keen interest to both practicing designers and their clients. Grants will be awarded this year between two types of research studies:
This year's Transform Research Grant program is focusing on how diversity, equity, and inclusivity can be supported through interior design. The COVID-19 pandemic has unearthed many discrepancies in society, including economic and social inequalities. How can interior design and its positive impact be available, accessible, and achievable to the larger population? What needs to be considered to have designed environments be more inclusive to diverse occupants? How can organizations use interior design as a tool for providing diversity, equity, and inclusivity to their employees, clients, and customers?
Proposed research projects should be rooted from research questions that empirically investigates potential solutions, generates measurable results on the impact of design, and translates the findings into actionable design recommendations, guidelines, and/or tools that designers can apply in their design projects.
