The Society of Light and Lighting has extended the deadline for applications for the Jean Heap Research Bursary to 30 April 2015.

The Society launched the bursary back in November, in tribute to the commitment to lighting research and education which Jean Heap demonstrated within the Society and throughout her career in the lighting industry.

Applicants are invited to submit a written paper, along with a short video to outline their research proposal. Following this, a selection panel will select the successful proposal.

The panel will be looking for a specific piece of lighting study or research designed for the benefit of the industry and SLL members. The call for applications is open to everyone with an interest in lighting.

Applicants should outline the proposed research project, including the specific topic to be researched, the methodology, the timescale and the clearly stated aims and objectives of the research.  The successful proposal will also include an outline of why the applicant needs further funding and how the additional funds will be used in carrying out their research.

Timeline for applicants:

  •  Deadline for entries— 30 April 2015 (extended from 31 March 2015)
  •  Successful applicant to be announced at the Society’s AGM on 21st May 2015
