The Class of 1959 Endowed Scholarship in Landscape Architecture

In honor of their 50th Reunion, the Class of 1959 has generously established an endowed scholarship in Landscape Architecture. The awards will be available to undergraduate or graduate students who wish to study the art of landscape architecture, with special consideration given to students who are committed to working on creating significant public spaces. Giving students the chance to focus their studies on developing these unique skills will guarantee that the beauty of places like the University Quad will continue to be a part of our society. Funds totaling $152,970.71 were invested on April 1, 2012, including a 50% match by the University of Washington.

To acknowledge the generous gift from the Class of 1959, the department Professional Advisory Council organized a lecture by Professor Emeritus David Streatfield on April 19, titled:
The Power of Place: Vision, Design and Patronage in which he articulated the significance of the contribution of the Class of 1959.

We have established our campaign goals to leverage a $1 million investment in students, faculty, and programs into far-reaching educational and social benefits.

Endowment for Excellence
Our goal is to establish a $750,000 Endowment for Excellence that will provide the department necessary resources to support critical faculty research and to help defray some of the costs of community-based initiatives. While the latter programs are supplemented by grants, gifts, and in-kind contributions, our faculty and students still miss out on engaging opportunities, and communities miss out on important benefits, due to lack of private support.

 

Student Scholarships
We’ve established a scholarship goal of $250,000. These funds will be used to further extend the reach of our endowed student scholarships, including one in the name of program founder Richard Haag. These scholarships allow the department to continue to attract outstanding students who will bring a diversity of thought to the study of Landscape Architecture.
