Günter A. Schoch Bursary

The Günter A. Schoch Bursary Fund

The Manitoba Association of Landscape Architects established the Günter A. Schoch Bursary Fund under the auspices of the Landscape Architecture Canada Foundation (LACF) in 1994. It was done in recognition of the extensive legacy of Günter A. Schoch, and his enduring contribution to the profession in general, and to the Manitoba Association of Landscape Architects in particular.

The fund was designated to offer bursaries “for landscape architectural research into the history and status of the profession in Canada, including its organizations and notable practitioners.” The LACF Board of Directors decided to begin the award in December, 1997. The LACF Annual Grants Jury reviews applications for this bursary.
