Welcome to AIGA Innovate! The application period is now open, so apply today! (Remember, application closes May 5.)

AIGA Innovate supports critical, relevant, and ground-breaking projects at AIGA chapters across the country which demonstrate AIGA’s core values: leadership, design excellence, impact, and equity. Projects should upgrade the member experience and promote collaboration amongst members and their chapters, with potential rollout to the wider network. It is an opportunity for chapters to positively impact local communities beyond design, develop and prototype exciting projects that deepen relationships with business, enterprises, and social ecosystems while fostering the entrepreneurial spirit of their members and promote engagement by design, and ultimately to further AIGA’s mission to advance design as a professional craft, strategic advantage, and vital cultural force.

AIGA Innovate is a four-year fund with up to $250,000 to be awarded each year. The first group of projects was funded in 2015.
