The Nuckolls Fund has recently redesigned its website at nuckollsfund.org and has become a new resource for educational materials. There are eight teaching modules on the site and the proceedings from the IES Symposium “Light+Seniors: A Vision for the Future”. All are available at no charge.
In April 2013, The Nuckolls Fund for Lighting Education awarded $70,000 in grants and awards. One $20,000 Nuckolls Fund Grant was awarded to the University of Michigan to develop and deliver a new course called “Virtual Lighting Design and Analysis” with Principal Investigator Mojtaba Navvab. A second $20,000 Nuckolls Fund Grant was awarded to the University of Minnesota to develop and deliver a new course in lighting which will support the development of an emphasis in lighting design at the undergraduate level in their Interior Design Program with Abimbola Asojo as Principal Investigator. And a third $20,000 grant was awarded to Carnegie Mellon University for developing and delivering a series of five workshops for both faculty and students at schools of architecture in the US to encourage the development of new courses or expansion of existing programs in lighting. Cindy Limauro will be Principal Investigator for that grant.
The $5,000 Jonas Bellovin Scholar Achievement Award was given to Anthony Pualani who is graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2013 and taking a position with Horton Lees Brogden Lighting Design in Boston. The $5,000 Jules Horton International Student Achievement Award was given to Minchen Wei, from Shanghai China, who is presently at Penn State University getting his Ph.D. degree in their lighting program with plans to join lighting academia upon completion of that degree.
