LACF AWARDS $20,000 IN GRANTS FOR 2015

Monday, February 2, 2015

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE CANADA FOUNDATION (LACF) is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2015 grants in support of research, communication and scholarship.

“From landscape restoration at home and abroad to documentation of the built environment past and present, LACF is proud to support these grant proposals that reflect the expanding role landscapes play in providing social, cultural, ecological and economic benefits to society”, said LACF President, Cecelia Paine, FCSLA. “The impact of these grants is multiplied by the requirement that each of the proponents share the results of their work through online resources, print publication, or conference presentations. Documentation of each grant is accessible through LACF’s online Portfolio #112-119.

Annual grant proposals are adjudicated and awarded by a national jury composed of six individuals from public, and private practice with academic credentials representing the Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, Prairie, British Columbia regions and Canada’s north.  The Board of the Landscape Architecture Canada Foundation extends recognition to the many individuals and component associations who through their annual donations make these grants possible.
