The Maryland Chapter offers scholarship and fellowship opportunities in furtherance of its mission to promote the profession of landscape architecture statewide through advocacy, education, communication, and fellowship.
The Executive Board and Scholarship Committee of MDASLA are pleased to announce the following recipients for the 2023-2024 Scholarship + Fellowship. The committee is grateful for the record-breaking number of applications and had the hard task of reviewing and selecting three outstanding candidates. Thanks to all who submitted this year! Each of these recipients has demonstrated their academic excellence, student engagement, and furthering the profession.
This year's scholarship recipients are:
(Left) UMD Scholarship Winner: Caleb Austin, Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, Class of 2025, University of Maryland
