The LACF Indigenous Scholarship in Landscape Architecture is awarded to an Indigenous landscape architecture student who exemplifies the principles of leadership, creativity and empowerment of Indigenous people and their landscapes through research, design, and/or engagement. This $6,000 annual scholarship supports a Canadian Indigenous student in eligible Undergraduate or Graduate programs in Landscape Architecture in Canada.

LACF is pleased to announce the inaugural Frederick Gage Todd National Scholarship (FGTNS). One prize of $10 000 will be awarded in Summer 2021 to an outstanding Canadian student enrolled in a CSLA-accredited program of landscape architecture. This scholarship recognizes a student who demonstrates exceptional knowledge, skill and commitment directed to the advancement of Canadian landscapes through the practice of landscape architecture.
LACF Virtual Awards Meet and Greet for 2020 Student Winners
On Friday, January 15th 2021, the 2020 LACF Scholars were invited to a virtual meet and greet. Vincent Asselin, President of LACF, and Cecelia Paine, Chair of the LACF Scholarships Committee, hosted the event with a brief presentation of each winner prepared in English and French by Michelle Legault, Executive Director of CSLA and LACF. The students each then provided a brief comment to the group. Professional representation from across Canada cheered the members. Landscape architects present emphasized to the scholarship recipients that they were a part of a large family of professionals and that even during this time where in person meetings are not possible, that CSLA members were just a phone call away to provide insight and mentorship. Congratulations to these exceptional new members to the profession.
