Horton Lees Brogden Lighting Design (HLB) has contributed $25,000 to the Nuckolls Fund for Lighting Education in honor of the late Jules Horton, founder of HLB, to establish an annual Jules Horton International Student Achievement Award scholarship in the amount of $5,000. The scholarship will be awarded to an international student who has achieved outstanding performance in pursuit of a lighting career in the United States, and who is enrolled in one of the six U.S. colleges that offer a full lighting education program. In other Nuckolls Fund news, Carol C. Caughey, IIDA, associate professor of design and human environment at Oregon State University, has been elected to the board of directors of the Nuckolls Fund.
Also in the world of industry education, W.A.C. Lighting has bestowed a scholarship to support a graduate student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Lighting Research Center. The scholarship will be awarded to a student enrolled in one of the graduate degree programs offered at the LRC. Yi-wei Liu, a second-year student in the MS in Lighting Program at Rensselaer, is the first recipient of the W.A.C. Lighting Scholarship.
