The Student Award in the future
Over the last ten years, the Landscape Research Student Awards programme has progressed from a largely undergraduate focused award to an exciting mix of awards for degrees at all levels. The growth of this award – and the challenges that accompany such growth – have us reconsidering how we manage the awards programme going forward. We have decided to review how we can best support and encourage students undertaking landscape studies, and are suspending the awards until future notice.
