Optical components provider Edmund Optics is now accepting applications for their 2012 Edmund Optics Higher Education Grant Program. In a continuing effort to support outstanding undergraduate and graduate optics programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at non-profit colleges and universities, Edmund Optics will be awarding grants worldwide totalling US$80,000 in products.
“Because of the overwhelming success of our global grant program, we have increased the grant amount by 20% over last year for a total of $80,000 in products,” said Kirsten Bjork-Jones, Director of Global Marketing Communications.
“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.”
