In addition to the William Turnbull Prizes, the Arid Lands Institute at Woodbury University awarded research grants of $10,000 each to 5 projects. Research awards will be used to advance each proposal technically, and to develop public policy tools, between January and March 2012. Award-winners will be paired with policy mentors and technical advisors from multiple disciplines. In March, award-winners will present their design research and the policy implications they suggest at ALI’s International Drylands Design Conference (March 22-24, 2012).
We greatly appreciate the efforts put into all of the submissions and hope that you will continue to advocate on behalf of design as a crucial aspect in addressing water issues. Thank you again for helping to make this competition a resounding success.
