The IES Young Professionals Scholarship Fund supports the attendance of students and emerging professionals at the IES Annual Conference.
A minimum of four awards (one from each of the Society’s Regions) of $1,000.00 each will be granted each year to emerging professionals (individuals working in the lighting profession for five or fewer years) and students in their junior or senior year of undergraduate studies or enrolled in a graduate program. All awardees must be a member of the IES.
The grant will offset some of the costs of travel and lodging; the conference fee will be waived.
Scholarships will be awarded to applicants who show evidence of a commitment to the lighting profession, leadership abilities, and potential for future involvement in the IES.
For the 2016 Annual Conference (October 23-25, 2016, Orlando, Florida) applications must be received by no later than September 8, 2016.
Qualified individuals must submit the following materials to the Scholarship Committee to be considered:
Applications should be sent to:
Written acknowledgement and agreement that if selected for the scholarship, the applicant shall write a summary of no less than 500 words of his or her experiences at the conference, and submit it to LD+A for publication no later than 60 days after the end of the conference.
Applicants who wish to apply for both the Young Professional Scholarship and the IES EP Sponsorship may do so, but a complete and separate application must be submitted to both programs. The closing date for both applications is September 8, 2016. Only one scholarship/sponsorship will be awarded to an individual.
