The Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) announced the second cohort and finalists for LAF Ignite, their scholarship-internship-mentorship program for BIPOC students. One of the five awardees is SEAS MLA student Kaia McKenney
The multi-year program provides participants with an annual $10,000 scholarship, an annual paid summer internship, and various forms of mentorship. Each year, 3-5 students are selected to join the program, and participation is ongoing until they have completed their landscape architecture degree.
Another SEAS MLA student, Anastasia Marie, was recognized as a finalist who stood out during the selection process and will have access to LAF's network for internship and mentorship opportunities.
Congratulations to both Kaia and Anastasia!
