On Saturday, October 15, the Knowlton School of Architecture welcomed friends and supporters to Knowlton Hall for the KSA’s annual Scholarship Luncheon event.  More than 120 people attended the luncheon, which brings together individuals and organizations committed to providing support for students enrolled in all three of the KSA academic sections with the students who are current recipients of that generosity.

Interim Landscape Architecture Section Head Rob Livesey chaired the event, in his comments noting that the annual Scholarship Luncheon affords the Knowlton School an important opportunity to relive its rich and evolving history.  Many of the scholarships that make it easier for deserving students to attend the Knowlton School are named in honor of some of the School’s finest teachers and researchers, most distinguished alumni, and dedicated friends. Others were created more recently, by local corporate and professional groups, alumni, and supporters of the Knowlton School wishing to develop scholarship programs in memory of deceased loved ones who were affiliated with the school. In that vein, at this year’s event, members of the “AMJ Team” announced the first winners of the new Alicia’s Fund Scholarship, named in memory of Alicia Jackson, a Class of 2008 Master of City and Regional Planning alumna who tragically passed away in December 2010.

The Knowlton School is fortunate to have 33 endowed scholarship programs that each year provide vital financial assistance to its undergraduate and graduate students. This academic year, 74 KSA students will receive financial support from our scholarship programs, a number that equates to 10% of the student population of the school.
