About the IA Institute Research Grants Program

Each year, the IA Institute presents a US $3000 award toward research in the field of Information Architecture. The purpose of the program is twofold:

  • to encourage researchers and practitioners to investigate IA-specific issues, and
  • to publicize useful work that furthers the information architecture body of knowledge.


The IA Institute is pleased to announce that Sally Buford of the University of Canberra, Australia, has submitted the winning proposal of the US $3000 IA Research Grants for 2012-13!

Congratulations, Sally!

This year we received a record total of 8 paper proposal submissions. The authors of the remaining 7 proposals will be contacted individually in the coming few days with feedback from the jury and we thank you for your submissions.

The grant proposals we received represent hard work and innovative thinking from all applicants. Look for future announcements about the progress of these initiatives, and the details of their outcomes.
