In honour of Marieluise Jonas, an educator who inspired many with her passion for and understanding of Asian urbanism, the Marieluise Jonas Scholarship has been established at RMIT, where she spent eight years as part of the Landscape Architecture program.
The Scholarship will provide landscape architecture students with the opportunity to undertake either an international internship in landscape design practice or self-guided research and exploration in Landscape Architecture. The Scholarship will allow for global activities, with a preference for activities in Asia in keeping with Marieluise's passion.
Selected by an Advisory Committee and provided annually, the Scholarship will be awarded to a student enrolled in either the Bachelor of Landscape Architectural Design or Master of Landscape Architecture who demonstrates an interest and merit in overseas Landscape Architecture practice, as well as evidence of their ability to inspire positive change. The scholarship is open to all eligible students irrespective of Australian citizenship.
The Marieluise Jonas Global Practice Scholarship in Landscape Architecture has been established in recognition of Marieluise's contribution to RMIT University's Landscape Architecture Program, and the positive impact she had on countless students' professional practice. This Scholarship draws on her passion for education, Asian communities of practice and the value she placed on reflective, independent research and travel.
