The College of Architecture is excited to announce third-year landscape architecture student Aus Perez from Holdrege, Nebraska, was one of 17 students selected to receive a national, prestigious Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) scholarship.
According to LAF these awards recognize leadership, reward superior student performance, support access and diversity and assist students with unmet financial need. These scholarships were designed to help diversify the pool of talent and increase academic opportunity for new generations of designers.
LAF scholarship winners were selected through a competitive process by juries made up of leaders in landscape architecture practice, academia and industry.
This award speaks volumes to talent represented by our landscape architecture students and the excellence of their work,” said Landscape Architecture Director Mark Hoistad. “It has been a pleasure to see Aus grow as a designer and leader.”
Upon graduating, Perez hopes to obtain a master’s degree in landscape architecture and urban planning. In the future, Perez hopes to become a college professor and pursue research goals related to landscape architecture.
According to Perez UNL’s landscape architecture professors have inspired their passion for landscape architecture and its field of study. Perez loves exploring new landscapes, going to concerts with their friends, and taking care of all their plants.
