“Developing programs that provide educational opportunities for the next generation of the lighting industry is a priority for Barbizon Lighting and has long been one of our guiding principles,” said Barbizon Lighting’s President and CEO Tom Madden. “These scholarships provide access and financial support to students who show promise and passion in the field but are not otherwise able to afford admission. The experience allows these promising students the rare opportunity to glean wisdom and inspiration from accomplished industry veterans. Barbizon Lighting hopes these scholarship recipients will someday grow into the industry-leading lighting designers that we see and read about.” Those interested should apply via https://stageseminars.com/registration/scholarships
