APALA Scholarship Fund: Peter Klynstra Memorial Scholarship

PETER KLYNSTRA MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

APALA and LACF are pleased to announce the eighth annual competition for the Peter Klynstra Memorial Scholarship. An award of $1000 will be presented to an Atlantic Canadian student entering the second or later year of landscape architectural study in a recognized undergraduate or graduate program. The scholarship recognizes Peter Klynstra’s significant contribution in the field and is intended to support students entering the profession.

Klynstra spent more than 20 years as a design professor in Environmental Planning at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and then at Dalhousie University during which time he mentored many students. In his over 40 years of practice as a landscape architect, Peter Klynstra was involved in major projects relating to waterfront planning, institutional land planning and development research. In addition to his innovative design talents, Klynstra was highly sought after for his expertise in community consultation and was a strong advocate for the voice of the community in planning projects. He was a member of the National Capital Commission’s Design Advisory Committee from 1994 1996, and was a Fellow of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects. But perhaps he is best known for his energy and enthusiasm to help on projects large or small with his limitless stream of ideas and encouragement. In 2011 the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects bestowed its President’s Award upon Klynstra in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the profession.

The scholarship will be awarded to a student entering the second or later year of landscape architectural study in a recognized undergraduate or graduate program. The successful applicant will have excellent grades, take an active interest in professional activities and express the strong intention to practice in Atlantic Canada. If you share Peter’s passion for the profession of landscape architecture we’d like to hear from you.

To apply, provide:

  • A letter outlining how you meet the above award criteria,
  • Curriculum vitae,
  • University transcript for prior year(s) of study in landscape architecture,
  • Contact information, and
  • One letter of recommendation from a member of the landscape architecture faculty in which the applicant is enrolled (this is to be sent under separate cover directly from the faculty member to APALA).
