SCHOLARSHIP and FELLOWSHIP
Plan New Hampshire is a membership organization of architects, landscape architects, engineers, planners, contractors, real estate and law professionals and others with an interest in the built environment.
Plan NH raises awareness of the link between the built environment and the social, economic and environmental fabric of a community. We believe that what we build, where we build and how has a direct impact on that fabric.
So we promote sustainable planning, design and development. We do so by championing Smart Growth and Livability principles, as well as social responsibility and collaborative/cooperative efforts.
A cornerstone of our programs is our Scholarship and Fellowship Program, in which we recognize outstanding students who call New Hampshire home and who are studying a field that supports our mission. This may include, but not necessarily be limited to:
- Landscape Architecture
- Studio Art
- Interior Design
- a construction-related field or trade
- Environmental science or similar field
- Land or community planning
In partnership with the NH Charitable Foundation, Plan NH finances these scholarships and fellowships from NH-based funds that were created for the purpose of encouraging and supporting students interested in some aspect of the built environment and its impact on the social, economic, and/or environmental capital of a community.
