Matriculated full time graduate students are invited to submit a proposal for a fellowship to fund a research study focusing on healthcare interior design issues. The American Academy of Healthcare Interior Designers (AAHID) fellowship is open to all graduate-level students who are interested in research on healthcare interior environments.
Research is needed for designing facilities that improve healthcare environments with the ultimate goal of providing improved patient outcomes. The purpose of this program is to: 1) promote the importance of healthcare interior design research; 2) contribute to the body of knowledge for healthcare interior design, consistent with the mission of AAHID.
The fellowship award is in the amount of $6,000.00 and includes a full conference registration, plus a stipend valued at up to a $1,500 for travel expenses to present at the Healthcare Design (HCD) conference in November 2017. The award is intended to support the recipient by providing funds to cover research, education and necessary expenses during the award year. The award also includes a mentor from AAHID if desired.
