BARRINGTON, N.J., Feb. 28, 2014 — Edmund Optics (EO) is now accepting applications for its 2014 Educational Award, formerly the Higher Education Grant program.

Gold awards receive $10,000 in EO products, while silver winners receive $7,500 and bronze recipients gets $5,000. There will also be 12 matching awards given out, which will receive $500 in EO TechSpec products.
Winners are chosen based on technical merit as well as innovative use of optics in a research setting or lab.
