Landscape Architecture announces  MIG Scholarship Fund For The Design Of Equitable and Inclusive Environments

The University of Washington’s College of Built Environments is thrilled to partner with MIG Inc. in creating the MIG Scholarship Fund For The Design Of Equitable and Inclusive Environments. This scholarship will be granted to the CBE Department of Landscape Architecture students with a demonstrated interest and commitment to the design of equitable and inclusive environments.

Guided by CBE and the Department of Landscape Architecture’s commitment to equity and representation throughout their student and professional communities, this scholarship will enable students to focus their time and efforts on their research, immersive learning projects, and building the foundations necessary to lead the profession into the future.  The MIG scholarship is an enrichment of the educational experience of our students with a collaborative and community-focused partner organization.

The award winning redesign of Hing Hay Park (above), located in Seattle’s International District, is the result of a strong collaboration between the community, MIG, UW faculty, and other partners.

MIG Inc. is a community of designers, planners, engineers, scientists, and storytellers engaging, involving, and acting with people to find solutions to the built environments’ most wicked problems. This partnership is an important advancement in Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion work in the field of Landscape Architecture by way of creating this scholarship. The MIG Scholarship Fund For The Design Of Equitable and Inclusive Environments will enable our students to focus their time and efforts on their research, immersive learning projects, and prepare the next generation of landscape architects and built environment professionals.

We at MIG are very excited to partner with UW’s MLA program to encourage an equitable and inclusive approach to the design of the built environment
