Process for Grant Funding
The AIAM – MAF Architecture Awareness Committee will annually research and find potential grant candidates. There is no formal application process other than making Committee members aware of your program, or of one you think has merit.
The Committee will review all potential candidates. A simple majority vote will determine the grant recipient and the amount to funded. The Committee has full discretion on the amount of each grant and on any restrictions that may be placed on each grant.
Criteria for Selection
The Selection Committee
The Committee is comprised of appointees from both the MAF Board of Trustees and the American Institute of Architects – Michigan (AIAM). Half of the appointees are to be made by AIAM and half by MAF for any given calendar year and serve for one calendar year.
Each organization also appoints a co-chair from the Committee to serve a one-year term.
