Jonathan Speirs Scholarship Fund
The Jonathan Speirs Scholarship Fund is a UK registered charity that provides support to students of architecture who wish to enter the architectural lighting design profession. It has been set up at the behest of the late Jonathan Speirs to allow ‘A Student of Architecture to investigate the study of Architectural Lighting Design’. We are entirely funded by donations, particularly from the lighting, architecture, and engineering communities. We urgently need your support. Please give generously. Thank you.
The Jonathan Speirs Scholarship Fund minimises administrative costs to maximize the value of contributions.
Did You Know?
Despite the rapid growth of architectural lighting design across the world there is still only a limited system of formal education within the field. This is despite the presence of a number of national and international associations that represent the area of work. Whilst the situation is steadily improving it is still the case that if you wish to become an architectural lighting designer it is likely that you will only be able to gain your formal training through the study of architecture, interior design, theatre design or a similar creative and technical field prior to receiving your actual lighting education through practice.
