There are three £500 awards to support students who are studying horticulture, landscape design, architecture, urban design or arboriculture. The Travel Awards are sponsored by The Fred Roche Foundation, The Parks Trust and an anonymous donor.
Two of the awards are for students to broaden their subject knowledge through travel, in the UK or abroad, during the summer break and The Parks Trust sponsored award is for applicants who would like to apply for an award to help in their studies through the purchase of specific equipment or to fund other general training opportunities that could help to enhance their career.
Who can apply?
In order to apply, you must be between the ages of 18 and 25 on 1 June 2019 and be connected to Milton Keynes. You should have an interest in pursuing a career or further study in horticulture, landscape design, architecture, urban design or arboriculture.
Growing Local Talent
The Fred Roche Foundation was created to keep the MK spirit of creative exploration, innovation and strength of vision alive, and to celebrate the life and achievements of Fred Roche who played such a seminal role in the creation of the City. Their aim is to stimulate creative discussion and debate around subjects that are critical to the character and vitality of Milton Keynes and to foster respect for the great urban development and achievement the New City represents. With this in mind, MK Community Foundation will ask that the successful applicants to share a visual report, blog and/or vlog, describing their travels or educational investment so that their story can be shared with a wider audience and encourage more awareness of the importance of studying horticulture, landscape design, architecture, urban design or arboriculture.
Deadline for completed applications is Friday 22nd March 2019
Applications will be reviewed by the MK Community Foundation panel and the winner will be announced on their website on Friday 5 April 2019.
