ASLA Council of Fellows Adds Third Award to Annual Scholarship

The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) Council of Fellows has increased the number of awards available through its annual scholarship. Up to three $4,000 awards will now be available each year to promising landscape architecture students. Each recipient also receives a one-year student ASLA membership, general registration fees for the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO, and a travel stipend to attend the meeting.

“The Council is pleased to expand this opportunity. In addition to the financial award, this scholarship provides the exceptional opportunity to interact with the profession and its leaders by attending the Annual Meeting as a guest of honor,” said Council of Fellows Chair Susan L.B. Jacobson, FASLA.

The ASLA Council of Fellows scholarship fund was established in 2004 to increase the interest and participation of economically disadvantaged and under-represented populations in the study of landscape architecture, enriching the profession through a more diverse population. Upper-level undergraduate students enrolled in Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB) accredited programs are eligible. Full details and application information are available on the ASLA Council of Fellows Scholarships page.

The awards are part of the Leadership in Landscape Scholarship Program managed by LAF, which now offers a total of $43,500 annually through 9 different scholarships and fellowships.
