The student's project study should have a wide scope, such as investigating new techniques of garden restoration; studying how small gardens created by community groups have impacted public gardens; exploring and documenting physical, emotional and spiritual healing properties of the garden; and instigating the development of gardens that use ecological and regenerative concepts. These are only a few of the many topics available to interested applicants. Selection criteria will include the degree to which the proposed fellowship work addresses Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) and Garden Club of America (GCA) objectives, as well as the excellence of the student's academic qualifications and person.
