Scholarship Program

About LACF Scholarship Awards

LACF currently manages a number of different scholarships that are offered to worthy students enrolled in accredited Canadian Landscape Architecture programs. The foundation also offers research bursaries to students (and practitioners) that are administered through the LACF Annual Grants Program.  

An ongoing priority for the Foundation is to provide an endowed, yearly Scholarship Award for each of the accredited programs of Landscape Architecture in Canada.  To achieve this goal, LACF solicits funds for its national scholarship (LACF Andre Schwabenbauer National Scholarship) and partners with CSLA component associations or interested groups on a variety of other regional or thematic scholarship initiatives.
