Placemaking Scholarship for Washington D.C. candidate

  • Subject: [cg] Placemaking Scholarship for Washington D.C. candidate
  • From: "Harriet Festing" <hfesting@pps.org>
  • Date: Wed, 13 Feb 2002 14:14:16 -0500
  • Importance: Normal


If you are from Washington D.C and would like to learn the skills of
placemaking firsthand, you may be eligible for one of our 'Making Places'

The scholarship covers course fees for our two-day training course 'How to
Turn a Place Around'.  The course is based on Project for Public Spaces'
broad experience and research in community-based planning and
decision-making, which has helped more than 1,000 communities in 46 U.S.
states and 12 countries to "turn their places around."

The candidate is likely to be from one of the following categories:

• professionals working with public spaces whose employers are unable to
support them (primarily employees of nonprofits with limited funds)
• community activists who are directly involved with public spaces, but lack
the support of an organization to sponsor them
• students and other academics with a proven interest in public spaces, who
can demonstrate financial need

The scholarship does not cover the costs of travel and accommodation, which
must be met by the candidate.

To apply for the award, please write a letter or email to Harriet Festing,
Project for Public Spaces (153 Waverly Place, 4th floor, New York, NY 10014,
hfesting@pps.org, p212-620-5660).  The letter should include your name and
contact details (including email address and phone number), and should
outline the reasons you think you are a suitable candidate for the
scholarship.  Please also specify which course date would be suitable April
25-26, 2002 or October 24-25, 2002.

Deadline for application is March 15th or until a suitable candidate is

Any questions? contact Harriet Festing hfesting@pps.org
