PlaceWorks Scholarship Program

The mission of PlaceWorks is to envision and create great places—and the PlaceWorks Scholarship Program aims to help the next generation of planners, urban designers, landscape architects, and environmental specialists. PlaceWorks is offering $5,000 scholarships to California college and graduate students from diverse backgrounds who are pursuing a degree in eligible planning, urban design, architecture, environmental planning, landscape architecture, and related fields.  

Applicants must be California residents currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate level studies and must be planning to enroll full-time in an eligible major for the next semester or term. In addition, applicants must identify as American Indian or Alaska Native; Arab/Middle Eastern; Asian; Black or African American; Hispanic or Latino; and/or Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. 

Up to two $5,000 awards will be granted, and recipients will be eligible for internship opportunities with PlaceWorks.
