Edmund Optics is now accepting applications for its 2012 higher education programme that will see grants awarded worldwide totalling $80,000 in the company's products.

The company’s goal is to support outstanding undergraduate and graduate optics programmes in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at non-profit colleges and universities. The process for selecting winners is determined by the company’s grant team. Finalists are selected and asked to provide more detailed information about their programmes, after a review of applications. Grant recipients are selected on the basis that what they are doing has technical merit and involves an innovative use of optics in a research setting or laboratory. Finalists will be notified by 25 July and winners will be contacted on 14 September.

‘Because of the overwhelming success of our global grant programme, we have increased the grant amount by 20 per cent over last year for a total of $80,000 in products,’ said Kirsten Bjork-Jones, Edmund Optics' global marketing communications director. ‘It's easy to apply and I would encourage anyone involved in a project using optics, opto-mechanics or imaging components at a non-profit college or university to do so.’

The company awarded more than $66,000 of its own products to nine non-profit universities in the Americas, Europe, and Asia under its 2011 higher education programme. Applications for the 2012 competition can be made through the webpage www.edmundoptics.com/grant.
