IA Progress Grants

We are pleased to announce the formation of two Information Architecture Progress Grants. The goal of the grants is to encourage and publicize useful work that furthers our knowledge of information architecture.

Two grants will be awarded in February, 2005. Applicants must be AIfIA members. Each grant is for US$1000, with $500 awarded upon project initiation and $500 awarded upon completion.

The resulting reports will be published on the aifia.org website.
