LAF Announces New $25,000 Fellowship for Landscape Architecture Professionals

The Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) is thrilled to announce that it is accepting applications for its new LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership. This $25,000 year-long fellowship is an opportunity for mid-career and senior-level landscape architects to explore, research, develop, incubate, and test the next big ideas and initiatives that will bring about positive change and expand the impact of landscape architecture.

The fellowship was created to foster transformational leadership capacity and innovation in the field of landscape architecture. Each year, three-to-five fellowships are awarded through a competitive application process based on a proposed project. Projects may be grounded in theoretical or historical investigations, product development, new practice or service models, built work or any activity that creates knowledge and empowers landscape architecture.

Over the course of the fellowship year, selected Fellows dedicate approximately three-months’ time to project work and participate in three three-day residencies in Washington, D.C., as well as monthly conference calls. The fellowship allows for the realization of each candidate’s project and builds leadership capacity by bringing together a cohort of Fellows who provide guidance and support, while offering mentorship for emerging professionals from LAF’s Olmsted Scholars Program.

The inaugural cohort of the LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership will run April 2017 – May 2018. Eligible applicants must have a minimum of six years of professional experience in landscape architecture and be able to dedicate the equivalent of 12 weeks’ time to their proposed project.

Application materials are due December 1, 2016.

For more information on the fellowship program, structure, eligibility, and application materials, visit: www.lafoundation.org/laf-fellowship.

The launch of the LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership was made possible by the funds raised through LAF’s 50 & Forward Campaign, which will both expand the foundation’s current programs and create new program offerings.
