October 30, 2017 – Rikerrious Geter of GGN addressed the Council of Fellows last week at the ASLA Annual Meeting and Expo in Los Angeles. He spoke about the impact of receiving the Council of Fellows Scholarship and the effects it has had on his college and professional career. Rikerrious was a 2014 scholarship recipient.
The Council of Fellows Scholarship was established by the ASLA Council of Fellows in 2004 to aid outstanding students who would not otherwise have an opportunity to continue a professional degree program due to financial need; to increase the interest and participation of economically disadvantaged and under-represented populations in the study of landscape architecture; and enrich the profession of landscape architecture through a more diverse population. In addition to receiving $5,000, each recipient received a one-year student ASLA membership, general registration fees for the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO, and a travel stipend to attend the meeting.
