Inspiring Illumination
McClung Lighting Research Foundation



The Jim H. McClung Lighting Research Foundation encourages creative thinking, scientific exploration, and new solutions to old problems. The Foundation is especially receptive to research that helps us better understand the effect of light on personal health, safety, productivity, lifestyle, and satisfaction. In time, the applications of this knowledge will improve designs, conserve natural resources, and inspire new light sources and optical theories.

Researchers interested in submitting a project proposal for consideration by the McClung Foundation may provide a brief description, specify requested funding, and outline a project timeline.


The McClung Foundation has supported a wide range of lighting research
