AACSRE Announces Emerging Fellows Program for Signage Research

The Academic Advisory Council for Signage Research and Education (AACSRE), has announced its Emerging Fellows program, which provides research support for projects related to the societal benefits of on-premise signs.  The program is designed to stimulate and extend research projects by scholars, from public and private U. S. universities, who have demonstrated promise and/or success in conducting research related to signage. The scope of proposals may vary widely across disciplines and methodologies.  Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Scholarship of legal issues related to signs and wayfinding

  • Creative activity related to the design of new signs or the reuse of existing signs

  • Engineering studies related to signs and traffic safety and mobility

  • Economic analysis related to the value of signs

  • Marketing or other business research on the value of a brand or logo as depicted on a sign


Fellowships will be awarded to support the development and dissemination of signage research. Applications and/or questions should be directed to Patty Herbin at patty@aacsre.org or telephone 336-260-3197.
