Research Grant Program to Award Designers, Scientists and Educators

July 25, 2011

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Foundation has launched the second annual Interior Design Research Grant Program, “Transform,” which focuses on applied research in interior design and human behavior. The program will award up to three grants of up to $35,000 each.

“The Foundation’s research grant program enables the profession to build a base of knowledge about how interior design impacts human behavior and well-being,” said Judy Pickett, FASID, ASID Foundation chair. “With this new and updated evidence-based research, designers are given relevant information that they are able to use with all clients in all areas of design. Nothing gets more powerful than that.”

Research proposals should demonstrate practical applications for both interior designers and their clients. The ideal length of a project is one to two years, and the grant can be used as the startup funds of a larger project. The grant program is open to design professionals, clients, scientists and educators, as well as interdisciplinary collaborations.

Research proposals are being accepted through October 3, 2011. To learn more about the research grant program and download the 2011 RFP, please visit
