A Growing Scholarship Program

LACF is the leading source of scholarships for landscape architecture students in Canada. With the new Frederick G. Todd National Award in the making and 14 partnered-regional scholarships to be awarded annually, our two-tiered scholarship program is growing strong.

Our scholarships recognize superior academic performance, promote leadership, and encourage original and creative design work and research. LACF scholarships support students with financial awards so that they can focus on developing their unique potential and skills. Financial support helps lighten the load for a student and is essential to attract the brightest and best to our Canadian LA programs. Our students are our future. 

> LACF-FAPC National Scholarship

In July 2018, the LACF Board voted to establish a new national scholarship. This significant award of a minimum of $5,000 honours the memory and work of Frederick Gage Todd, Canada’s first resident practitioner. The inaugural award is scheduled for 2020.
