AIA Announces RFP for Funded Research Grants on Design and Health
Communities large and small around the globe face increasingly complex challenges to quality of life that require innovative solutions. The AIA has launched a long-term commitment that it will develop with other partners within the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) to help address such problems. Decade of Design: The AIA Urban and Regional Solutions Challenge is conceived as a 10-year commitment to engage architecture schools and other stakeholders in research in a set of targeted areas to address problems facing, urban, suburban, and rural communities in the United States and beyond.
To launch the Decade of Design the AIA is partnering with ACSA and the CGI to solicit proposals for research projects in the first of a series of topic areas: design and health. The proposed projects should document the positive impact of design interventions or propose solutions, based on past successes, that can be readily implemented in the future. Through the projects, faculty, students, and practitioners will actively engage stakeholders to ensure that proposed design solutions are a good fit for the communities in which they will occur.
The AIA will award up to $40,000 in grants, with a maximum of $20,000 for any single project.

Nuckolls Fund 2011
The Nuckolls Fund for Lighting Education was established in 1988 to support college-level lighting programs that enable students to learn, appreciate, and apply the basics of lighting and design.
Each year, the Fund solicits proposals from colleges and universities for innovative educational ideas that will inspire students with an understanding of light in architecture. Submissions are evaluated by the Fund's Board of Directors, which includes people from a cross section of the lighting industry as well as the academic community.

Graham Foundation Institutional Grant
The Graham Foundation offers Production and Presentation Grants to organizations.
These grants assist organizations with the production-related expenses that are necessary to take a project from conceptualization to realization and public presentation. These projects may include, but are not limited to, publications, exhibitions, installations, conferences/lectures, films, new media projects, and other public programs. Projects must have clearly defined goals, work plans, budgets, and production and dissemination plans.
Grant amount: Production and Presentation Grants to organizations do not exceed $30,000 and are likely to be less. Given the demand for funding, the Graham Foundation is not always able to fund grantees at the full request amount.
Grant period: Production and Presentation Grants must be completed within two years. Applicants should allow sufficient time to plan, implement, close out their project, and, if funded, acknowledge Graham Foundation support in all printed media.

The Texas Tech University Libraries Faculty Research Committee invites applications for the 2011 Gloria Lyerla Library Memorial Fund Research Travel Grant.
Gloria Lyerla worked for more than 30 years at the Texas Tech University Libraries. Her dedication to the support of research on the TTU campus and throughout Texas was an inspiration to her colleagues. Her leadership within the Interlibrary Loan area brought state-wide and national recognition to Texas Tech. In memory of her years of service, a fund has been established by friends and family to support Texas Tech University researchers in their efforts to acquire from rare and/or difficult to retrieve materials.
The purpose of the Research Travel Grant program is to assist Texas Tech University researchers in meeting the costs of travel to research collections of libraries, archives, museums and other repositories throughout the world. The award is open to full time TTU tenure track or tenured faculty members. Successful applications will receive an award of up to $750.00 in a single payment. The award must be used for the exclusive purpose of helping to defray the researchers’ travel expenses, and is intended to be used in the twelve months immediately following the award announcement.
Deadline: February 15, 2011.

The Constructed Environment Conference is a place to explore the forms and functions of the constructed environment during a time of dramatic and at times disruptive change. The conference is a cross-disciplinary forum that brings together researchers, teachers and practitioners to discuss the past character and future shape of the built environment. The resulting conversations weave between the theoretical and the empirical, research and application, market pragmatics and social idealism. In professional and disciplinary terms, the conference traverses a broad sweep to generate a transdisciplinary dialogue which encompasses the perspectives and practices of: architecture, anthropology, business, design, economics, education, engineering, environmental design, industrial design, interior design, landscape architecture, sociology, town and regional planning, and transportation.
