The Besal Lighting Education Fund Selects 13 Scholarship Recipients



Administered and invested by the Illuminating Engineering Society as part of its Lighting Research and Education activities, The Besal Fund is made possible by contributions from Acuity Brands Lighting, its sales representatives and employees.
“Though I can’t rule out other opportunities, I could see myself being happy working as a designer for the entirety of my career,” said Riley Johnson, a rising Senior at the University of Nebraska and one of the scholarship recipients. “I see lighting design as something that cannot be perfected, but a skill that can be continually refined as I learn more about it. It’s my goal to become as skilled as possible and be respected throughout the industry as an outstanding engineer and designer.”
