A new award has been created for undergraduate students who demonstrate exceptional interest and aptitude in lighting and energy efficiency. The Susan Woodward Lighting Design and Research Award will help further the education of students enrolled in undergraduate lighting courses at the University of California, Davis.
Led by co-directors Michael Siminovitch and Konstantinos Papamichael, the courses are taught at the California Lighting Technology Center and are offered through the UC Davis Department of Design, under the College of Letters and Science's Division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies. The award will be conferred annually to exemplary students at the directors’ discretion.
The Susan Woodward Lighting Design and Research Award continues CLTC’s mission to support lighting education as a critical part of the development of energy-efficient design and technologies. It will fund training for current and future lighting industry professionals.
Prior to her medical leave and recent passing, Susan Woodward played a critical role in developing the curriculum for the California Advanced Lighting Controls Training Program (CALCTP). Susan valued continuing education, particularly in the service of lighting and energy-efficiency. This award was established by Susan’s friends and family to honor her memory and continue her legacy in lighting and education.
