Applications are now open for this year’s Landscape Institute Student Travel Award.
The award is open to student members studying on LI accredited programmes, and offers support of up to £750 to successful applicants.
‘The aim is to provide applicants with an opportunity to travel that might not otherwise be open to them,’ says Martin Hird who chairs the awards panel. ‘As a panel we are looking for proposals which are original, well researched and achievable and make good use of the grant award.’
Last year’s successful applicants were Andrew Kenny, who travelled to Istanbul to research and record informally planned developments and new regeneration and Jack Campbell-Clause who journeyed to Kenya to look at the role of landscape architects in the slum upgrading process as part of the Kounkuey Design Initiative.
The award is supported by a fund set up in memory of four landscape architects, David Ashmore, Adrian Brunswick, Michael Norton, and Mary Mitchell.
The closing date for applications is 28 February. Click here for further details and an application form.
