The PlaceWorks Scholarship Program is Open for Applications!

Update: The application period for PlaceWorks’ inaugural scholarship program closed on September 13th. This year’s recipients will be announced in January 2022. The 2022 Scholarship Program will open in the spring, so be sure to check back for updates!

The PlaceWorks Scholarship Program supports the next generation of planners, environmental specialists, urban designers, and landscape architects. The program offers scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students from historically underserved backgrounds who are pursuing degrees in planning, urban design, architecture, environmental planning, landscape architecture, and related fields.

Applicants must identify as American Indian or Alaska Native; Asian; Black or African American; Hispanic or Latino; or Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. Additionally, applicants must be California residents who are currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate studies at an accredited California college or university and who are planning to enroll full-time in an eligible program during the next term.

We will award up to two $5,000 scholarships annually, and each recipient will be eligible for an internship with PlaceWorks.
