Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the MDes Program, the MDes 研究 & Development Award supports research and development of projects in the multiple formats and media of the MDes Program vision, offering an opportunity unique to MDes students for experimentation, immersion, and discovery. The Award supports travel to archives, fieldwork, project development, material experiments, and occasionally supports conference presentations.

建议每年一次审查,在春季学期在年度基础上。提案的质量,清晰度和建议的研究的原创性,项目活动,并预计结果进行评估。陪审团由MDES区领导和项目主管。
