Request for Proposals: The Nuckolls Fund

The Nuckolls Fund for Lighting Education is an endowment fund in support of college-level programs that inspire students with an understanding of light in architecture. Each year, the Fund solicits proposals from colleges and universities for innovative educational ideas consistent with the Fund’s objectives, and awards grants after rigorous review.

Grant proposals are accepted only from educators at academic institutions in North America.

In 2016, the Nuckolls Fund for Lighting Education intends to award the following four grants:

Nuckolls Fund $20,000 Grant
The Nuckolls Fund Grant has been given annually since 1989 on the college level for the development and delivery of an innovative new or expanded course in lighting.

Edison Price $10,000 Fellowship Grant
The Fellowship Grant enables a lighting educator to further his or her own education by spending a significant portion of a semester in the lighting industry working with a manufacturing or design firm, or at a college or university with a thriving lighting program working with an established professor.

Lesley Wheel Introductory Lighting Program $20,000 Grant
This grant is directed to programs in architecture, engineering, technology and interior design that have either minimal or no lighting design offerings in their curricula now, but have a strong interest in adding them.

New Grant Option
If you have an idea for funding that would further the cause of quality lighting education but it does not fall into one of the listed grant categories, please feel free to submit it as a proposal.

Proposals due February 6, 2016
