Landscape architects and urban designers have a critical role to play in the face of climate breakdown and health and wellbeing issues. They need to be imaginative, thoughtful, quietly revolutionary.
To celebrate their 40th year, LDA Design is awarding five one-year bursaries worth £2,000 each to support and encourage those studying landscape architecture or urban design in the UK, at undergraduate or post-graduate level. In addition, they will also offer the recipients the opportunity of paid work experience with them.
They are committed to encouraging a wider range of students into our professions. They intend for one or more of the bursaries to be allocated to students who have faced challenges to pursuing higher education.
To help the selection process, they are setting a design challenge to re-imagine a network of streets, an urban block or small neighbourhood. Download the challenge to find out more.
Awards will be announced at the end of November. Payments will be made in December 2019 and March 2020.
