About the scholarship

The vision of this scholarship is to encourage Indigenous students to enter the landscape architecture profession. Arcadia believe that proper representation of Indigenous people in landscape architecture will galvanise our capacity to care for country, connect with history and tap into ecological knowledge developed by our First People over eons.

The involvement of First People adds an intrinsic element to design meaning and connection to the land, as well as bringing value and richness to the sense of place, helping share stories and build cultural awareness.
