LAF Scholarships
Join us in Celebrating Scholarship
and a More Equitable Future
for Landscape Architecture
Landscape Forms is proud to continue its partnership with the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) to offer two annual scholarships for distinguished undergraduate landscape architecture students: The Landscape Forms Scholarship in Memory of Peter Lindsay Schaudt and the Landscape Forms Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Scholarship.
We deeply believe in the positive impact landscape architects can have on the environment and society’s connection to it, and consider it a fundamental responsibility to support, celebrate and elevate the rising leaders in our industry. Through our two annual scholarships, we seek to increase the influence of the next generation of landscape architects by creating a more equitable, inclusive, creative and sustainable future for the profession.

Congratulations to Jordan Chiang & Diamond Owens, 2021 Scholarship Recipients
Diamond Owens (left image), winner of the Landscape Forms Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Scholarship, is an accomplished landscape architecture student from the University of Georgia. She is pursuing the profession to discover meaningful new connections with the outdoors, building on her own experiences with nature to help enhance the experiences of others. "I strive to be more than just a designer, more than just a landscape architect. I strive to be an activist and an educator,” says Diamond. "I truly cherish that my contributions to the world will change the lives of people of all ages and races. My perception of nature was falsely shaped by its lack of prevalence in the inner city, therefore, I commit to positively impact the lives of others in the urban environment.” With a focus on public health, environmental education and the integration of nature in the urban landscape, Diamond will assuredly contribute significantly to the field.

Jordan Chiang (right image), winner of the Landscape Forms Scholarship in Memory of Peter Lindsay Schaudt, FASLA, is an exceptional landscape architecture student graduating from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. A self-described “landscape nerd,” he is profoundly intrigued by the natural world and the interdisciplinary aspects of landscape architecture. “For me, getting into landscape architecture was the natural combination of my passions for both the arts and the sciences,” describes Jordan. His passions are accompanied by a keen eye for detail in the landscape. “In my free time, I really love exploring new neighborhoods, identifying native plants and appreciating the subtle differences in architecture,” he says. Jordan has demonstrated extraordinary aptitude and passion for his field, and will no doubt do great things in the landscape architecture profession.

Inspiring a passion for artfully-designed outdoor spaces.
The Landscape Forms Scholarship in Memory of Peter Lindsay Schaudt celebrates the 30-year career of a leader and visionary in landscape architecture. Peter was one of the founding principals of the award-winning firm, Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architecture in Chicago, Illinois and a dedicated member of the Board of Directors for Landscape Forms. He was widely admired for his incredible talent, dedication, generosity, and integrity – and passion for the “art of design.” This scholarship is open to landscape architecture students in their final two years of full-time undergraduate study in a LAAB- or LAAC-accredited program in the U.S. or Canada and is awarded on the basis of academic accomplishment and creative design ability. Applicants must demonstrate passion, commitment, and competence in creating artfully-designed places for people. Recent winners of this scholarship include Christian Moore from Ohio State University in 2018, Guadalupe Rodriguez from Cal Poly Pomona in 2019, and Claire Jarvis from the University of Georgia in 2020.

Because the future of landscape architecture starts with diverse perspectives.
New for 2021, the Landscape Forms Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Scholarship reflects our aim to help create a society where social justice and racial diversity are the norm. We believe the best workplaces embrace individuality where any person can feel a strong sense of belonging—we aspire to that reality for our own workplace, and we are committed to help spread this mindset across the whole of landscape architecture professions. This scholarship was established as a small but meaningful step toward achieving that vision of a just and diverse community in our industry, helping Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) students advance in their education and career in landscape architecture. The Landscape Forms Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Scholarship is open to undergraduate landscape architecture students who identify as BIPOC and are currently enrolled in a LAAB- or LAAC-accredited program in the US or Canada. Candidates must demonstrate financial need, academic aptitude, and commitment to the discipline of landscape architecture.
