Lighting bursary aims to benefit the industry

Bursary launched in 2014 in tribute to Jean Heap

Ready Steady Light

Applications are now open for the Society of Light and Lighting’s (SLL’s) 2018 Jean Heap Bursary, with up to £4,000 of research funding available.

The bursary was launched in 2014 as a tribute to the commitment Jean Heap showed to lighting research and education throughout her career within the SLL. It is open to anyone with an interest in lighting, and the judging panel will be looking for a study or piece of research that has the potential to benefit the industry and SLL.

Applicants should outline their proposed project, including the specific topic to be researched, the methodology, the timescale and the aims and objectives of the research. Proposals should also include an outline of why the applicant needs further funding and how this will be used.

More information and details of how to apply are available here. Applications need to be received by 30 March, and the winner will be announced at the SLL AGM on 24 May 2018.
