Southern Region

Region Mission

The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of the Association for Learning Environments. We must now build on this tradition by increasing our membership to include sectors now under-represented within the organization. Increasing membership from the communities we serve to include minorities and urban school personnel.

Southern Region Foundation 2017 Scholarship – LearningSCAPES Conference

This scholarship provides financial assistance for one or more individuals residing in the Southern Region states to attend the A4LE Annual Conference October 26 thru October 29, 2017 in Atlanta, GA. This important event brings together school planners, educators, and design and construction professionals from around the world to collaborate on ideas and issues relating to the planning and design of contemporary schools.

Preference will be given to those who have not attended a A4LE Annual Conference in the recent past due to financial burden. The maximum amount of this scholarship is $1,200 and may be applied to registration, travel and/or hotel costs as needed. Incidental expenses such as meals not covered by the conference fee and ground transportation are not included in this scholarship.

Deadline for entries: August 4, 2017.
