Emily L. Rothrock, Student ASLA, and Sarah DaBoll Geurtz, Student ASLA, have been selected as the ASLA Council of Fellows (CoF) scholarship recipients for 2009.

Rothrock, who will be a fourth-year student in landscape architecture at Virginia Tech, is the student ambassador for the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech, which takes her to high schools and organizations to promote the college and Virginia Tech. She hopes to inspire designs that fit within the urban context and overall ecology of a site and surrounding areas, as well as provide a rejuvenating and comfortable place for the people who live there. The application references describe Rothrock as “a hardworking and personable student who raises the stakes among her classmates and is someone who has fully embraced the discipline of design and the subtleties of landscape architectural education.”

Both students will attend the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO in Chicago to receive the $4,000 scholarship certificates at the CoF Business Meeting on Sunday, September 20, at 12:15 PM in the Lakeside Center at McCormick Place.
