LAF News – August 2020


Apply to be part of the 2021-2022 Cohort
The $25,000 LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership is a unique opportunity for mid-career and senior-level landscape architects to explore, research, develop, and test big ideas that will bring about positive change and expand the impact of landscape architecture. Participation in the fellowship also cultivates transformational leadership and intergenerational mentorship.
The next cohort will run from spring 2021 to spring 2022 with 3-4 fellowships awarded through a competitive application process based on a proposed project. Over the course of the fellowship year, selected Fellows dedicate approximately 3-months’ time to their proposed project and participate in three 2.5-day residencies in Washington, D.C., as well as monthly calls.
Application materials are due September 15.

1) Watch the LAF Fellows’ presentations from our annual Innovation + Leadership Symposium, the culmination of their year spent exploring big ideas.

2) See four of the 2019-2020 Fellows discussing their leadership journey and answering questions about their projects on Instagram Live.

3) Meet the 25 senior level, mid-career, and emerging landscape landscape architects selected as LAF Fellows since the program launched in 2016.
