Apply for the ILASA Bursary scheme 2023

DEADLINE: 8 November 2022

One of the key strategic objectives of ILASA (Institute for Landscape Architecture in South Africa) is to transform the Landscape Architectural profession with the ultimate aim that it reflects the demographics of the South African population.

The envisaged Bursary Scheme is to target previously disadvantaged individuals and to promote
balance and diversity within the Landscape Architectural profession. This is to further enable and
encourage previously disadvantaged individuals to obtain financial assistance to become registered

The ILASA Bursary Scheme is aimed at contributing to build greater capacity, commitment, accountability and responsiveness in the Landscape Architectural field. The personal career advancement of the individual applicant, while an important outcome of the bursary process, is secondary to the over-arching goal of strengthening and encouraging individuals to follow careers in the Landscape Architectural sector.
ILASA is committed to investing considerable resources in its potential bursars and the individual
support it offers its applicants in order to meet the goals, as set out above.

ILASA will/shall therefore advertise for deserving applicants to apply for these bursaries on an annual
basis and will award bursaries, where possible, to those individuals pursuing careers that will benefit
the Landscape Architectural Sector.

How are bursaries awarded?

Bursaries are awarded according to the ILASA bursary policy, academic merit, financial need, the

requirements of the various universities and the availability of funds.

Final selections are made by the ILASA NEC.

Bursary funds are paid out directly to tertiary institutions and other relevant service providers – bursary fund monies are ONLY paid out directly to parents/guardians/students under exceptional circumstances.
