This is the first year of the new bursary scheme offered by the Landscape Institute through the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust.
The main aim of the Trust is to encourage people from non-traditional backgrounds to study for careers in the built environment professions. To date it has mostly focused its efforts on architecture but the proposal to offer a new bursary for landscape architecture was very welcome.
We are delighted that there have been several applications for the first bursary and these will be evaluated over the next few weeks. We look forward to the first Stephen Lawrence Bursary holder joining an accredited course in landscape architecture at the start of the new academic year in the autumn.
