Danielle Schwartz and Chloe Weigle Chosen as CED Olmsted Scholar Nominees

Congratulations to Danielle Schwartz (right), candidate for Master of Landscape Architecture, and Chloe Weigle (left), candidate for Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, for being chosen this year’s CED Olmsted Scholar nominees.

Each year, the CED faculty chooses one graduate student and one undergraduate student to represent UGA CED in the national competition, which is sponsored by the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) Olmsted Scholars Program. The program recognizes one graduate and one undergraduate student from an accredited landscape architecture program in the United States and Canada to receive scholarships, totaling $25,000 and $15,000 respectively. According to the LAF, the Olmsted Scholars Program recognizes students with “exceptional leadership potential who are using ideas, influence, communication, service and leadership to advance sustainable design and foster human and societal benefits.”

Danielle Schwartz is a second year MLA student interested in social justice issues, particularly with regards to immigration and Latin American communities. Chloe Weigle is a senior BLA student, minoring in horticulture and has a particular interest in community-based design. Both women represent outstanding scholarship and professionalism at the CED and are active within CED and UGA.
