Over the EDGE at Boji Tower

October 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

PROMOTING LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE TO YOUNG BLACK PEOPLE AND PEOPLE OF COLOR.

The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) has been historically underrepresented by
Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. As a chapter, we recognize that real change must start
with our youth and we are committed to providing financial resources to help young Black
people and People of Color to discover the profession of landscape architecture.

For this reason, in the fall of 2020 we established a scholarship program to support students
from historically underrepresented demographics in their pursuit of an undergraduate or
master’s degree in landscape architecture. Our aim is to aid in the development of a more
diverse and inclusive generation of future leaders in the profession of landscape architecture,
that is more representative of our communities. The intent of the scholarship is to provide
financial support in furthering the student’s educational and professional development, while
removing barriers to entry into the field of landscape architecture.

In order to establish the scholarship program and fundraise for it, The Michigan Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects  established the Michigan Chapter ASLA Foundation, a
non-profit 501(c)3 organization, which is fully responsible for fundraising, collecting, and
donating funds to be used for DEI scholarships and activities. As a result of our efforts to date,
scholarships will soon be awarded to two landscape architecture students in the Michigan State
University and the University of Michigan programs for the 2022-2023 school year.
We continue to explore ways to raise funds for additional scholarships and encourage all who
are interested to visit our website at https://www.michiganasla.org/
