Thank You to Our 2020 Scholarship Jurors

In 2020, the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) awarded over $100,000 to students through 13 different scholarships and fellowships established by generous sponsors. The recipients are chosen through a competitive application and selection process. LAF convenes juries to decide the winners of five awards.

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who served on a scholarship jury this year. The time and thoughtful review put forth by these jurors reflects their dedication to the profession, hope for the future, and commitment to supporting the next generation of designers!

LAF is grateful to the many individuals and organizations that provide financial support towards fulfilling our mission to support the preservation, improvement, and enhancement of the environment.

Much of what LAF is able to accomplish would not be possible without the thought leadership and financial investment of our major supporters, including ASLA, which provides over $125,000 of in-kind support annually.
