Awards are worth up to £750
The Landscape Institute is pleased to announce the launch of its student travel award for 2016. This is a fantastic opportunity for students studying on a Landscape Institute accredited course, to develop their knowledge on a specific landscape topic in an area of the world which fascinates them. Successful students are awarded up to £750 for a single trip to take place by the end of 2016.
In past years, successful applicants have:
- measured the impact of green infrastructure and governmental planning in Portland and New York
- investigated urban agriculture in Cuba
- studied the representation of vast landscapes in small spaces and the use of moss in Japan
- explored approaches to dealing with urban storm-water issues in China
Morag McGregor, who was selected in 2014, said: “The opportunity to visit some of the case studies which I found most inspiring has given me a much richer understanding of these places and how they became what they are. I encourage all students to consider applying for the student travel award in the future.”
This award comes from a fund set up in memory of David Ashmore, Adrian Brunswick and Michael Norton, three landscape architects who were tragically killed in an air crash at Biggin Hill on 13 January 1979. A legacy was added to the fund on the death of Mary Mitchell in December 1988.
You can find out more about the competition on our competitions page where you can also download the application form . The closing date for applications will be midnight, Sunday 24 April 2016.
