This is a friendly reminder that the submission deadline for LJMRF grants is approaching fast: APRIL 1st.
Created through a generous gift from the late Lindsay Jones, the Lindsay Jones Memorial Research Fund supports projects addressing the meaning and significance of the built environment. Proposals could come from a range of disciplines (e.g., architecture, landscape architecture, sacred arts, urbanism, interior design, environmental psychology, material culture, phenomenology, etc.). Project proposals should identify one of the four principal areas of the fund: scholarly research, practice, service, or teaching. Successful applications might propose projects in a range of venues and media including, but not limited to, scholarly writing, film or other broadcast media, built works or projects, community engagement programs, or educational innovation.
Grants typically range from $2,000 USD - $5,000 USD. They are awarded every year and should be completed within a two-year period. We are especially interested in projects that advance the ACSF Mission and its vision that the design and experience of the built environment can assist in the spiritual development of humanity in service of addressing the world’s most pressing problems. We only fund individuals, not institutions or organizations, and welcome applicants from anywhere in the world. We expect to fund two to five projects in 2021.
