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 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. This year’s conference is in Lousiville, KY at the Omni Louisville Hotel from Aug. 8 to 10. The presentation will take place on Aug. 8, 2019, during the IES Illumination Award Ceremony. In addition, both the winner and honorable mention recipient will receive a free registration to the Annual Conference.
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.
