Education

The IES and IES Boston Section offer a variety of learning resources and opportunities that lighting and allied professionals will require throughout their professional lives to stay at the forefront of the art and science of lighting design, manufacturing and installation and to realize fulfilling careers.

Student Scholarships
Our Section is fortunate to have many colleges and universities offering programs related to building design and technologies. In keeping with the IES mission, our section wishes to encourage education in lighting and offers scholarships for students interested in pursuing lighting or related fields. Our scholarships have taken the form of submitted applications and/or design competitions.

Scholarships are distributed from an education fund generated by proceeds of our golf outing; however, at times we have also received sponsorship support from local businesses sharing a commitment to education. If your organization is interested in exploring the idea of such an arrangement, please contact any of our officers.

We encourage all students and educators to contact us to learn more about our scholarship opportunities. We will post details of scholarship opportunities on this page as they become available.
