Who Can Apply: This scholarship honors the memory of Courtland P. Paul, FASLA (1927-2003) and his lifelong commitment to the landscape architecture profession. A native Californian, he became one of the state’s first licensed landscape architects in 1954. Mr. Paul and Peridian International, the landscape architecture firm he founded over fifty years ago, were well known for community design and master planning, and for the golf courses, hotels, and theme parks they created in Southern California and throughout the world.
Eligible applicants are United States citizens who are undergraduate students in the final two years of study in Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB) accredited schools. Applicants must demonstrate financial need and a minimum grade point average of “C.” This award must be used only to cover the costs of tuition, books, and program-required supplies within the school year of the award.
