UNSW Built Environment Alumni: $10,000 Lindsay Robertson Award for Built Environment alumni

22 04 2009

UNSW landscape architecture alumni have a unique opportunity to do postgraduate study or their own project — anywhere in the world

Built Environment alumni with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture are now able to apply for a new $10 000 Award.   The Lindsay Robertson Memorial Award has been set up to encourage alumni to do postgraduate study in landscape architecture (or any related fields such as urban design or planning) or their own landscape architecture study project — anywhere in the world.

The $10,000 Lindsay Robertson Memorial Award award is available only to UNSW graduates in landscape architecture (within 15 years) and applications close on 31 May 2009. It will be awarded in 2010 and then biannually.

Lindsay Robertson graduated from UNSW in Architecture gaining a scholarship to attend the University of Pennsylvania. He was the first landscape architect appointed to the NSW State Planning Authority. He made a lasting contribution to landscape planning by introducing environmental and ecological considerations.  Following his death in 1974 at 38, the Lindsay Robertson Memorial Trust was established through the efforts of his close colleagues. UNSW Built Environment also gratefully acknowledges Lindsay’s colleague and UNSW alumnus, Rodger Bartlett, who in 2008 enabled the Award to be increased in value and offered biannually, in perpetuity.

More information and an application form is available from the UNSW Built Environment’s Postgraduate Scholarships website.
