AIA grant funds may not be used for institutional overhead, institutional administrative recovery costs, or institutional indirect costs. Recipients are required to submit a report to the AIA Fellowships Committee after the first year of funding (before the second half of the award is released) and are also encouraged to submit an abstract to the AIA's Annual Meeting during the second.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $2,500.
