The Nuckolls Fund for Lighting Education has set February 9, 2018 as the deadline for receipt of proposals for three grants. Each year, the Fund solicits proposals from educators at colleges and universities in North America for innovative educational ideas that will inspire students with an understanding of light in architecture.
Nuckolls Fund Grant: $20,000 to assist the development of a new or expanded course in lighting in an established lighting program.
Lesley Wheel Introductory Lighting Program Grant: $20,000, for new lighting courses at a college or university which has minimal or no existing lighting courses.
Edison Price Fellowship Grant: $10,000, given to an individual educator to further their own education for improvement of their ability to teach lighting.
New Grant Option: Proposals for funding ideas that would further the cause of quality lighting education but do not fall into one of the listed grant categories above are encouraged. The proposal should indicate a plan for implementation and generally conform to the required submission information listed in the other RFPs.
Proposals due on February 9th, 2018 can be transmitted to Nuckolls@nuckollsfund.org. There is no submission fee and no limit to the number of proposals submitted. Receipt of submissions will be acknowledged via e-mail. Grants to recipients will be announced no later than April 11, 2018.
