LACF Scholarships in Saskatchewan
There are currently no schools of Landscape Architecture in Saskatchewan. Students who are residents of Saskatchewan are invited to apply for scholarships to study outside the province through the Saskatechewan Association of Landscape Architects (SALA)
SALA Academic Award
Context and Description
The SALA Academic Award was established in 1986 under the auspices of the Saskatchewan Association of Landscape Architects (SALA). The initial intent of the award was to encourage and help fund the education of Saskatchewan landscape architecture students who have to leave the province for schooling. The original award was $350. In 2016 SALA and LACF established a partnership agreement and SALA transferred the management of the $55,000 endowment fund to LACF. Under the terms of the agreement, SALA continues to manage the student nomination and selection process. LACF approves the nominationsmadministers and manages the fund and national communications.
The SALA / LACF Academic Award of $1,500 is awarded to a resident of Saskatchewan. The award can be held for one year. At the discretion of the committee, the award can be extended to two years if no applications are received and sufficient funds are available.
