The AILA Yamagami Hope Fellowship was established as a tribute to the American Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA), Taro Yamagami and Howard Olsen, founding members of AILA. AILA, which unified with the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) in 1981, served to provide for the middle ground where the designer, landscape contractor and nurseryman, as well as those with formal training, could meet and discuss common problems and experiences. This $1,000 Fellowship is available to landscape architects who have been in practice for a minimum of three years and wish to use the funds for continuing education. The Fellowship may be used to support credit on non-credit courses, seminars or workshops; for travel or related expenses in support of an independent research project; or for development of post-secondary educational materials or curriculum plans. The applicant is required to have earned a Bachelor or a Master’s degree in landscape architecture. Submission will be evaluated on: 1) the innovative nature of the proposed endeavor; 2) the benefits that may accrue to other members of the profession and the profesison in general; 3) the personal goals to be achieved; and 4) the qualifications of the applicant.
