Howard Brandston Student Lighting Design Education Grant

Howard Brandston Student Lighting Design Education Grant

The Howard Brandston Student Lighting Design Education Grant was established to encourage and recognize students who have demonstrated exceptional professional promise through the presentation of an original and ingenious solution to a supplied design problem.

The Grant Award is a plaque and a grant in the amount of $1,000. Honorable Mention (if awarded) is a certificate and a grant in the amount of $300. The grant is awarded at the IES Annual Conference each year.

Group entries are acceptable. However, if a group entry is selected, each student will receive a plaque or certificate. The monetary grant will be divided among the recipients.

To be eligible to enter this competition, applicants must be enrolled as full-time students in an approved academic degree program. Approved programs are those offering a substantial core of illumination studies and are either engineering technology programs accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology; architecture programs accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board; interior design programs accredited by the Foundation for Interior Design Research; or theatre programs accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre. If there is a question about accreditation, please query.

The purpose of the Howard Brandston Student Lighting Design Education Grant is to foster good lighting and to advance the appreciation of lighting as an art.
