New Scholarship, Increased Awards Among LAF's 2022 Scholarship Offerings

LAF is pleased to offer $161,000 for the 2021-22 academic year through 17 different scholarships, several with multiple awards.

LAF scholarships support new generations of landscape architects by rewarding superior student performance, supporting access and diversity, and assisting students with unmet financial need. These awards are made possible through funds established by our generous sponsors.

The total amount available for 2022 represents a 30% increase over our 2021 offerings thanks to the establishment of two new scholarships and increases to several existing scholarships.

Eligible applicants are undergraduate or graduate students enrolled at colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada. Additional requirements vary by scholarship. Spread the word to qualified candidates! Applications are now open and due February 1, 2022.
