Overview:

This scholarship fund was established by the ASLA Council of Fellows in 2004 to: 

  • aid outstanding students who would not otherwise have an opportunity to continue a professional degree program due to unmet financial need
  • increase the interest and participation of economically disadvantaged and under-represented populations in the study of landscape architecture
  • enrich the profession of landscape architecture through a more diverse population

Up to three scholarships are awarded each year to promising students, with one specifically available to students of under-represented populations. Geographic distribution of the applicant pool will be considered.Since 1986, LAF has awarded over $1.25 million in scholarships and fellowships to over 550 students. These awards support new generations of landscape architects by recognizing leadership, rewarding superior student performance, encouraging diversity, supporting original research, and assisting students with unmet financial need.

LAF scholarships help to attract the best and the brightest to the profession and retain quality students.
