Northern Research Bursary Fund 

A proposal to create a Northern Research Bursary Fund to be established under the auspices of the Landscape Architecture Canada Foundation (LACF), has been initiated by the NWTALA. The objective behind creating this endowment fund and research busary is to promote interest in and advancement of research in northern Canada, defined as all regions of Canada north of the 55th parallel.

The Northern Research Bursary will be offered through the Grants program and committee to projects that comply with at least two of the following criteria:

  • Increase the body of knowledge of landscape architecture and related professions as it pertains to the north;
  • Increase the visibility of landscape architects in the north; and
  • Make positive change for the peoples of the north.

LACF Grants Committee will invite and review grant applications and will award grants, as it does with other Foundation grants. The Grant is to be open to landscape architects, allied professionals and students.
