Optical Research Associates of Pasadena, Calif., has established two educational programs for students in photonics-related fields. The company designed the initiatives around its Code V and LightTools software products. The Student Award Program will present a $4000 grant to two students annually. Candidates must use the company's software in optical design or engineering toward the completion of a baccalaureate or graduate degree. The Student Educational Policy offers full copies of Code V and LightTools at a reduced cost for educators and students in North America.
