We know the realization of our projects is due to the hard work of laborers, many of whom are people of color. We also recognize that people of color are dramatically underrepresented in the profession of Landscape Architecture.
With these facts in mind, we have instituted an annual scholarship with Virginia Tech’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. A $2,000 gift will go to students who are majoring in Landscape and Turfgrass Science and are members of student organizations such as Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences, or the Society for the Advancement of Hispanics / Chicanos.
It is our hope that this sum, though modest, creates greater opportunities for people of color to realize garden designs of their own. For more information about this and other giving opportunities at Virginia Tech, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
