During her last year of graduate school, Master of Landscape Architecture candidate Lindsay Eliason received five scholarships — four relating to landscape architecture. Eliason will graduate in May, leaving behind her own legacy of leadership in the College of Art and Architecture, where she served as president of the Student Congress of Art and Architecture, vice president of the Student Chapter of the American Society for Landscape Architects, and as a student ambassador to the College of Art and Architecture. Eliason credits her leadership ability to the scholarships made possible through the University of Idaho.
“Simply put, it has been a blessing to receive multiple scholarships. This financial support has enabled me to focus on my studies and further myself in the field of landscape architecture by gaining leadership skills in student organizations. I feel passionate about giving back to the College of Art and Architecture in this capacity because it has afforded me opportunities I wouldn’t otherwise have,” she said.
Upon graduation, Eliason plans to move to the Seattle area, where she has positioned herself for success through professional connections established during internships in both private and public sector organizations.
