The Sam Fox School Research Office (previously called the Design Research Studio) fosters a culture of research and creative activity by serving as a catalyst, facilitator, sponsor, and incubator of student and faculty creative initiatives and research projects to generate new knowledge, encourage entrepreneurship, and promote interdisciplinary collaborations in architecture, design, and the visual arts.
The Sam Fox School Research Office has worked with faculty and students across the school to define projects, seek funding, and identify internal and external partnerships to support research and creative activity. Here you will find a listing of current opportunities, as well as recent highlights of creative activity and research undertaken by members of our community.

In conjunction with the WU library system, the Sam Fox School Research Office is developing an internal website to help with art, architecture, and design funding opportunities and education: http://libguides.wustl.edu/samfoxfunding. This website is designed to grow over time, but currently includes links and databases of opportunities. The "Tags" tab has a full list we are developing. Please contribute if you have additional opportunities to share with the community.
If you are thinking about pursuing a research project, please reference the Research Gateway. This site is the largest source of information about University policies and procedures for research and creative activity. It also includes helpful information for planning and pursuing external funding. In addition, we are developing a list of education resources for the design and visual arts community that can be accessed through the Art & Architecture Library at this link. Please contact Enrique Von Rohr before seeking funding, or if you have any questions regarding University research.
We welcome the opportunity for individuals, corporations, or foundations to sponsor specific research initiatives or creative activity, or to sponsor a class, faculty project, or research question. Please contact Enrique Von Rohr at 314.935.6826 or email@example.com to discuss.
The Sam Fox School Research Office continues to work with all research support entities at Washington University in St. Louis to further the value of design and visual arts in all of our collaborations. Defining projects or research goals and building relationships both within the University community and beyond is a long-term strategic goal of the Sam Fox School Research Office. Our core mission is to further research and creative activity through external funding support and collaborative engagements.
