Danny Rich Memorial Scholarship FundThe International Color Consortium has established a scholarship fund in memory of Dr. Danny Rich, who passed away earlier this year and was an active member of ICC.
ICC invites proposals from students working in a topic related to colour management who need funding for a particular element of their research. Current topics which could be supported include Colour Vision, iccMAX implementation, CMM Performance and other research on colour management. This list of topics will be updated periodically.
A maximum of $10,000 will be awarded each year, which can be split across multiple awards. ICC especially encourages applications for the cost of publishing at conferences such as CIC. Funds can also be used for subsistence, travel, or purchase of items necessary for the work such as research equipment, software licenses or publications.
The next deadline for proposals will be in spring 2023. Proposals will be considered by a panel of ICC members, who will make recommendations to the ICC steering committee for a final decision. Proposals will be judged on their quality and the degree to which they meet the award conditions above, together with the funds available and the particular priorities of the ICC at the time. Details of awards will be announced on the ICC web site and ICC will also normally publish, or provide a link to, outputs of the research on the ICC web site.
Current research topics of interest to ICC are:
Proposals should be submitted to the ICC Technical Secretary . The closing date for applications for 2023 was June 30.
The 2023 award went to You-Sheng Zhang of National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, for the project "Comparing colour perception on LCDs with different backlight technologies - A study on observer metamerism".
