Double Dollar$ for Scholars

In 1988, SALA presented its first student scholarship of $350, and every year since then (except those without applicants), it has provided assistance to a Saskatchewan student registered in a landscape architect program, for a total of $31,450.   The monies initially used were the profits from a very successful 1985 CSLA Congress in Saskatoon.  With some investments, those funds have become an endowment of approximately $55,000 now administered by the LACF (Landscape Architecture Canada Foundation).

SALA has long considered assisting students to be an important aspect of our association, particularly in recognition that all Saskatchewan landscape architecture students must go out of province.  The scholarship award has grown over the years ($1500 in 2021), but because student costs have risen dramatically, we want to maintain our leadership and increase the amount of the annual scholarship. 

Our goal is to raise the endowment to at least $100,000 to support future landscape architecture students. The – Double Dollar$ for Scholars – the campaign aims to reach our goal in two to three years!
