Interior Design Research Grant Program   


The ASID Foundation is pleased to announce the third annual Interior Design Research Grant Program, Transform, to be awarded to design-related initiatives that address critical gaps in industry knowledge. 


Interior design transforms environments in ways that improve life's outcomes. Interior designers are ethically, socially and environmentally responsible professionals who design, renovate and provide design services that transform built environments. By extension, these grants seek to provide critical funding for research topics that advance design knowledge and transform the practice of interior design for the benefit of the public.

Stardust Building Supplies Plus ASID - Together Again!

Stardust has invited ASID Arizona North Chapter to join them at the Maricopa County Home Show September 27-29 as ASID designers create a kitchen vignette to educate the public about recycle/upcycle and the value of ASID designers.

Rather than showcasing individual designers, this extravaganza will showcase our chapter as a whole and the value of selecting an ASID designer for their next project.

We are looking for designers who are interested in helping in multiple ways, from assisting in the booth, to presenting seminars (20 seminar slots available!) on subjects such as DIY techniques, green design, kitchen trends, etc.

This is actually a kitchen design competition decided by popular public vote.  Help your chapter help Stardust win $10,000!  More information to come!  

Want to participate?
