Fellowship :: 2015 Boasberg Fellowship
The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF)
2015 Boasberg Fellowship
Apply by: 3.31.15
TCLF is now accepting applications for this year’s Sally Boasberg Founder’s Fellowship, an eight-week paid opportunity that includes housing. This is an exceptional chance to work at the Foundation’s office in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of the nation’s capital, experience the lively energy surrounding the work we do, and learn valuable skills related to the research and documentation of – and advocacy for—cultural landscapes.
The Fellowship honors the late Sarah S. (Sally) Boasberg, a founding member of TCLF’s Board of Directors who had a profound appreciation of the relevancy of design, an encyclopedic knowledge of plants, and a zeal for preservation. Sally and her husband, Tersh, were instrumental in the formation of TCLF, helping to pen its Articles of Incorporation in 1997 and remaining active as the Foundation evolved. Sally passed away in 2012 and, paying respect to her family’s commitment to TCLF and memorializing her dedication to the Foundation, the Sally Boasberg Founder’s Fellowship was initiated through donations from her friends and family. Tersh remains an ardent supporter of TCLF by generously providing housing for the Fellows at his home in Northwest Washington, D.C. where Sally’s beloved gardens remain a delightful inspiration.

If you or someone you know is passionate about furthering the understanding about landscape architecture, the 2015 Sally Boasberg Founder’s Fellowship is an exceptional opportunity. The paid Fellowship includes housing and requires an eight week commitment through the summer. Resumes and writing samples are now being accepted. Read more about the application requirements here.
