ASLA Council of Fellows Scholarships

ASLA Council of Fellows Scholarships
Award: Two $4,000 Awards
Deadline: Feb 15, 2013

Eligibility: Eligible applicants must be permanent US citizens or permanent resident aliens who are Student ASLA members and third, fourth, or fifth-year undergraduates in Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB) accredited programs of landscape architecture. Graduate students are not eligible for this award.

The scholarship fund was established by the ASLA Council of Fellows in 2004 to: 1) aid outstanding students who would not otherwise have an opportunity to continue a professional degree program due to unmet financial need; 2) increase the interest and participation of economically disadvantaged and under-represented populations in the study of landscape architecture; and 3) enrich the profession of landscape architecture through a more diverse population.

Up to two 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.  Applicants seeking special consideration for the diversity scholarship should indicate and identify their association with a specific ethnic or cultural group.

In addition to receiving up to $4,000, each recipient will also receive a one-year student ASLA membership, general registration fees for the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO, and a travel stipend to attend the meeting. Scholarship recipients are expected to attend the ASLA Annual Meeting to receive their awards.
