Young Professionals Scholarship Fund

The IES Young Professionals (YP) Scholarship Fund supports the attendance of Students—at the IES Annual Conference.

The IES Annual Conference (AC) provides a range of educational programming—including workshops, seminars, immersive experiences, tours, networking, and paper and poster presentations—on the art, design, science, and research of lighting relevant to lighting professionals, educators, and related design disciplines. As always, professional education is paramount, with a broad selection of CEU credits available through participation at the conference.

A minimum of four awards (one from each of the Society’s Regions) will be granted each year to emerging professionals and students. All awardees must be a member of the IES.

Scholarships will be awarded to applicants who show evidence of a commitment to the lighting profession, leadership abilities, and potential for future involvement in the IES.
