Placemaking Scholarship for Washington D.C. candidate

Placemaking Scholarship for Washington D.C. candidate

Project for Public Spaces

The scholarship covers course fees for our two-day training course 'How to Turn a Place Around'. The course is based on Project for Public Spaces' broad experience and research in community-based planning and decision-making, which has helped more than 1,000 communities in 46 U.S. states and 12 countries to "turn their places around."

The candidate is likely to be from one of the following categories:

- professionals working with public spaces whose employers are unable to support them (primarily employees of nonprofits with limited funds)

- community activists who are directly involved with public spaces, but lack the support of an organization to sponsor them

- students and other academics with a proven interest in public spaces, who can demonstrate financial need

The scholarship does not cover the costs of travel and accommodation, which must be met by the candidate.

To apply for the award, please write a letter or email to Harriet Festing, Project for Public Spaces (153 Waverly Place, 4th floor, New York, NY 10014, [email protected], p212-620-5660). The letter should include your name and contact details (including email address and phone number), and should outline the reasons you think you are a suitable candidate for the scholarship. Please also specify which course date would be suitable April 25-26, 2002 or October 24-25, 2002.

Deadline for application is March 15th or until a suitable candidate is found.
