Grant of $6,000 to a Rhode Island professional designer for a creative and innovative design idea. Applicants should contact program staff before applying to discuss their proposals. Design proposals are for one of the following: to produce an innovative design, process, or application or to create a new product or service that could benefit the public.

Designers are challenged to develop plans and concepts demonstrating extraordinary creative problem solving and innovation in a design field.

The DIG grant awards Rhode Island designers who demonstrate excellence and innovation in their field. Awards are based on samples of past work and proposals for future work. Grant recipients are not required to pursue implementation of winning design proposals or completion of design projects. However, award recipients will be asked to pursue the next phase of their project such as meeting with potential partners, creating more detailed schematics and creating a project development plan, etc.
