Hawaii Chapter David T. Woolsey Scholarship

(Landscape Architecture Foundation)

The Hawaii Chapter ASLA/David T. Woolsey (HIASLA/DTW) Scholarship program was initiated in 1986 after the passing of David T. Woolsey, former partner of Woolsey, Miyabara & Associates, Inc. to honor his distinguished career as a landscape architect.  The primary purpose of the scholarship is to assist student Hawaii residents seeking an education in landscape architecture.  The fund is administered through the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF).  For more information on this scholarship's requirements, visit the LAF's website here.

Donations are accepted directly to the Fund through LAF.  Please enter "Hawaii Chapter David T. Woolsey Fund" in the box asking: "Tell us why you are donating to LAF".  Mahalo!
