Description

This LAF Honor Scholarship was established in memory of Joseph J. Lalli, FASLA (1943-2014) and his 46-year career as a landscape architect, artist, philanthropist, mentor, and teacher. Joe was the chairman and former president of the firm EDSA and had more than 500 projects to his credit in 40 countries. He was a persuasive leader, well-known and admired for his modesty and generosity. Joe experienced great value in his Master's degree and wanted to help make the opportunity for graduate education accessible to others. Eligible applicants are landscape architecture students currently enrolled in a LAAB- or CSLA-accredited Master's degree program (post-baccalaureate or non-baccalaureate) at a university in the U.S. or Canada. Students must have a minimum grade point average of 2.5 (A or B). Applicants should show commitment to some of the areas that Joe Lalli dedicated himself to, including drawing, artistic pursuits, the importance of travel, and giving back in service to one's community and profession. Candidates will be evaluated based on their demonstrated design ability, leadership, character/integrity, and service to others and to the landscape architecture profession. Financial need will also be considered.
