ESF Students Receive Travel Scholarships
LA students to study in Spain and New Zealand
SYRACUSE - Two students from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) were awarded scholarships by Sigma Lambda Alpha (SLA) Honor Society of Landscape Architecture.
Katy Johnson and Jeffrey Tunkey, students in ESF's landscape architecture program, were each awarded $500 travel scholarships to support travel related to their studies.
During their fifth-year, landscape architecture students spend a semester abroad conducting independent research. Johnson, a fifth-year senior from Munnsville, will study in Auckland, New Zealand. Tunkey, also a fifth-year senior from East Aurora, will spend his semester abroad in Barcelona, Spain.
"Each year SLA awards a maximum of six travel grants, so for ESF students to receive two of them is quite a feather in ESF's cap," said Richard Hawks, chair of the Department of Landscape Architecture.Office of Communications
