The Information Architecture Institute (IAI) is calling for research proposal submissions for a USD $3000 grant, by the 15th of April 2012.
Topic & content
Applications should propose work that will forward the theory and practice of information architecture. This can include original research, a synthesis of existing research, the development of a new technique, method or tool, or something that could otherwise support the IA community of practice.
I'm in the process of applying for grad school, looking to learn about and study the usability of public transit systems. This is cross-disciplinary, but a big component of it is masters-level training in UX/Interaction Design. Would anyone happen to know of good scholarships/grants to chase for work in this area?
I hold an undergraduate degree in Graphic Design and have been working as a User Interface Visual Designer for the past year. I am interested in going back to school to get a Masters in a more specific and tech based field in the Fall of 2011. I have been looking into NYU Poly and other NYC based schools, since this is where I am from.
Do you know of any organizations that help financially in the education and advancements of Interaction Design?
Also if you know of any programs which are excellent I would love to hear about them. Thank You!
