The LAF Research Grant in Honor of Deb Mitchell supports research projects that are relevant and impactful for the professional practice of landscape architecture. 

Each year, one $25,000 grant will be awarded to support a research project that can be completed in a 12- to 18-month period. The research must generate knowledge and insights relevant to the practice of design in order to increase landscape architecture’s capacity and impact.

The Principal Investigator must be trained as a landscape architect and currently engaged in the field of landscape architecture as a researcher, educator, professional practitioner, or in some other capacity.


Grant Purpose

The LAF Research Grant in Honor of Deb Mitchell was established to raise the profile of research within landscape architecture, to offer new opportunities for collaborative research, and above all to honor Deb, who was a champion for the value of research to the professional practice of landscape architecture.
