During LABash 2021, we wanted to address the inequities within the profession and the many barriers to participate in landscape architecture. (We invited speakers to address ways to properly engage communities, asked firms to speak about their equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives, and have taken advantage of the virtual format to make this year’s LABash as affordable and accessible as possible. However, we did not want these considerations to end after the 2021 conference but to continue them through the coming years. 

With collaboration with CLARB and other organizations, we are excited to launch the LABash Seed Fund, a fund that will help students with financial needs attend LABash 2022 at LSU. As we hope to return to an in-conference format next year, we see the Seed Fund making LABash a more accessible, equitable, and enjoyable experience for landscape architecture students everywhere.

Criteria and award selection will be announced at a later date.
