Landscape Forms believes in the power of design to enrich outdoor spaces.

Landscape Forms, founded on the commitment to good design and concern for the well-being of people, created this scholarship to honor excellence in design for people — addressing how people use spaces and the ways in which the design of spaces and amenities can enhance and enrich the experience of those who use them.

The Landscape Forms Scholarship is open to landscape architecture students in their final year of full-time undergraduate study in an LAAB-accredited program and who demonstrate passion, commitment, and competence in creating great spaces for people.

Applicants must show a proven contribution to the design of public spaces that integrates landscape design and the use of amenities to promote social interaction. The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic accomplishment and creative ability.
