Description: The LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership was established to foster transformational leadership capacity and support innovation to advance the field of landscape architecture. Have a big idea? This $25,000 fellowship is an opportunity for landscape architecture professionals to dedicate the equivalent of 3 months’ time over the course of one year to a proposed project that brings about positive change and expands the discipline's impact.

Each year, 3-4 mid-career and senior-level fellowships are awarded through a competitive application process based on a proposed project. Selected Fellows receive a $25,000 financial award and participate in three 2.5-day residencies over the course of a year, as well as monthly conference calls. Their projects must demonstrate the potential to bring about impactful change to the environment and humanity and have the capacity to grow the leadership potential of landscape architects.

LAF is now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 fellowship cohort. Applications are due September 15.
