Although the awards are at the discretion of the Committee, it is expected that at least two $2,500.00 grants will be made for the coming year.

In addition to an application, candidates shall submit a Statement of Purpose with respect to the applicant’s lighting education and arrange for at least three letters of recommendation, at least one of which shall be from someone involved with lighting professionally or academically.
As this scholarship is intended to cover any and all fields of lighting (such as architectural, commercial, residential, airport, navigational, theatrical or TV, agricultural, vision, and so forth), it is suggested that applicants review the IES Lighting Handbook in order to comprehend fully the available fields of study. Inquiries, applications, and letters of recommendation should be submitted before April 1, 2013
